SocialEngine 4: PHP 5.6 Site Errors

Andrew - SocialEngine

Is your server hosting SocialEngine running PHP 5.6? You may see the following error

“Use of iconv.input_encoding is deprecated”

When a user tries to login

Such deprecated warnings are being thrown because of PHP’s latest version on your server. So, please check doing below changes in "/application/index.php" file and that will resolve this issue on your website:

Please search for below code:


and replace the above code with below one:

error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_DEPRECATED);

I Believe this will fix the problem you are facing and it should be fixed officially within the next version as the site needs to keep up with PHP Versions
