php - Call to undefined function recode_string() ubuntu


I got the error Call to undefined function recode_string()

in a simple php script, that had worked seamlessly beforehand.

Manually installing gnu recode on the system would not fix it.




Install php-recode

Installing php-recode package on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) is as easy as running the following command on terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php-recode



It turns out php-reccode had to be installed manually now while it was formerly included so

sudo apt install php-recode

fixed it. Did not find a solution here or in the php manual as yet so thought it might help you too.
