Full-Text RSS 2.8: Compatibility Test

Test Should Be What You Have
PHP 5.2.0 or higher 5.2.17
XML Enabled Enabled, and sane
PCRE Enabled Enabled
Zlib Enabled Enabled
mbstring Enabled Enabled
iconv Enabled Enabled
Data filtering Enabled Enabled
Tidy Enabled Disabled
cURL Enabled Enabled
Parallel URL fetching Enabled Disabled
allow_url_fopen Enabled Enabled

What does this mean?

  1. PHP: You are running a supported version of PHP. No problems here.
  2. XML: You have XMLReader support or a version of XML support that isn't broken installed. No problems here.
  3. PCRE: You have PCRE support installed. No problems here.
  4. allow_url_fopen: You have allow_url_fopen enabled. No problems here.
  5. Data filtering: You have the PHP filter extension enabled. No problems here.
  6. Zlib: You have Zlib enabled. This allows SimplePie to support GZIP-encoded feeds. No problems here.
  7. mbstring and iconv: You have both mbstring and iconv installed! This will allow Full-Text RSS 2.8 to handle the greatest number of languages. No problems here.
  8. Tidy: The Tidy extension is not available. Full-Text RSS 2.8 should still work with most feeds, but you may experience problems with some.
  9. cURL: The cURL extension is not available. SimplePie will use fsockopen() instead.
  10. Parallel URL fetching: HttpRequestPool or curl_multi support is not available. Full-Text RSS 2.8 will use file_get_contents() instead to fetch URLs sequentially rather than in parallel.

Bottom Line: Yes, you can!

Your webhost has its act together!

You can download the latest version of Full-Text RSS 2.8 from FiveFilters.org.

Note: Passing this test does not guarantee that Full-Text RSS 2.8 will run on your webhost — it only ensures that the basic requirements have been addressed. If you experience any problems, please let us know.

This compatibility test has been borrowed (and slightly adapted) from the one supplied by SimplePie.org. We have kept most of their checks intact as we use SimplePie in our application.
