Iconv support?

I just installed joomla, and was playing around with some rss plugins, and was having a little trouble. I emailed the author and he said that if I’m using non-english feeds to check if iconv support is turned on. How can I go about checking that? And if it is not turned on, is there a way to do it?

A quick google search showed that this is a php function. I then looked at the phpinfo pages provided by a freindly DH customer. It would apprear that php5 has support for this, but php4 does not.

You can check which version of php you’re using in the Panel > Manage Domains > edit. You should make sure any php scripts on your site are compatable with php5 before upgrading.

Ok! Looks like that did the trick! Looked at the php info and it says iconv is enabled now.
