I am trying to install Bugify onto a FreeBSD server.

I have installed pkg install php55 php55-pdo_sqlite nginx php55-curl php55-json php55-simplexml on the machine.

Configured php-fpm to listen on a UNIX socket /var/run/php-fastcgi/php-fastcgi.socket

This all seems to work but i am getting this error Fatal error: Call to undefined function iconv_set_encoding() in /usr/local/www/bugify/library/Bootstrap.php on line 16

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks for getting in touch. It looks like iconv isn't enabled. Have a look at and see if it helps.
