Conversion to PHP

The conversion performed in PHP is using the following PHP extensions:
  • the php_iconv.dll extension
  • the php_mbstring.dll extension
If none of these PHP extensions is found, only the Latin characters will be converted (the Chinese or Russian characters will not be converted for example).
The php_iconv.dll and php_mbstring.dll extensions are currently proposed on the PHP servers. To find out whether these extensions are proposed by your hosting company, enter the following information in a search engine: phpinfo <Name of hosting company>.
To install these extensions on your own PHP server, all you have to do is uncomment the requested extension in the PHP.INI file.
