How to solve JSON ERROR UTF8 error in php json decode

0 votes

I am trying this code

$json = file_get_contents("http://www.google.com/alerts/preview?q=test&t=7&f=1&l=0&e");
print_r(json_decode(utf8_encode($json), true));

        //////////////

// Define the errors.
$constants = get_defined_constants(true);
$json_errors = array();
foreach ($constants["json"] as $name => $value) {
    if (!strncmp($name, "JSON_ERROR_", 11)) {
        $json_errors[$value] = $name;
    }
}

// Show the errors for different depths.
foreach (range(4, 3, -1) as $depth) {
    var_dump(json_decode($json, true, $depth));
    echo 'Last error: ', $json_errors[json_last_error()], PHP_EOL, PHP_EOL;
}

I've tried a lot of functions, html_entities_decode, utf8_encode and decode, decoding the hex codes, but I always get the error "JSON_ERROR_UTF8".

How could I solve this?

Hello @kartik,

You need simple line of code:

$input = iconv('UTF-8', 'UTF-8//IGNORE', utf8_encode($input));
$json = json_decode($input);

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
