simplepie error : XML or PCRE extensions not loaded!

using simplepie it does not load the target feed, and does not display any errors. Just nothing. 

if your feed is init'd with $feed check for feed errors with: 

      $feed = new SimplePie();

$out .= "feed errors: " . $feed->error . "<br />";

or 

echo $feed->error

then to fix the error: XML or PCRE extensions not loaded!

you will need to install xml for php on your server

check version of php and install xml for that version

fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock;

for my server it was 

sudo apt install php7.4-xml

Ah well there goes that hour... but now its fixed for next time hopefully this may save you the same weird error when using simplepie.
