To convert a JSON feed to RSS in PHP, you can use the following steps:

  1. Read the JSON feed using the file_get_contents() function. For example: $json = file_get_contents('path/to/feed.json');
  2. Convert the JSON data to an associative array using json_decode() function. Set the second parameter as true to convert the JSON object into an associative array. For example: $data = json_decode($json, true);
  3. Create a new instance of the SimpleXMLElement class to generate the RSS XML structure. For example: $rss = new SimpleXMLElement('');
  4. Create the channel element and add it to the RSS XML structure. For example: $channel = $rss->addChild('channel');
  5. Iterate through the JSON data and convert each item to the corresponding RSS XML structure. For example: foreach ($data['items'] as $item) { $itemElement = $channel->addChild('item'); $itemElement->addChild('title', $item['title']); $itemElement->addChild('description', $item['description']); $itemElement->addChild('link', $item['link']); // Add more item data such as pubDate, author, etc. }
  6. Output the RSS XML using the asXML() method of the SimpleXMLElement class. For example: header('Content-Type: application/rss+xml; charset=utf-8'); echo $rss->asXML();

Remember to customize the code according to your specific JSON feed structure.
