Call to undefined function iconv_get_encoding() in /home/our_domain_name/public_html/xf/library/Zend/Validate/Hostname.php on line 513

Any ideas?
TIA!

Have to go do the night time routine with the kids, then I'll be back and start poking... Have you tried tailing your error log to see if anything useful comes up there when it errors?

It sounds like when php was compiled it didn't have all the packages. You will need to recompile it.

Looks like iconv is going to be required. I didn't realize how extensively Zend Framework uses it. Additionally, without it, imports could have more errors.

It's on by default in PHP 5, so you either need to manually disable it or use a package that disables it. In the latter case, you probably have a package that can add it.

If you are unable to get iconv installed on your server and can't install the software, contact us and we'll see what we can do.
