how to fix - Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mb_convert_encoding()

I use the php readability library in some of my code, and found on a new server that it was throwing the error.

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mb_convert_encoding()

For me this was caused on Debian from php missing the extention:

php-mbstring php7.0-mbstring

which can be installed in debian by using the following command:

sudo apt-get install php-mbstring

When I realized that, no individual step is hard in any process. Building this airport I'm standing in right now started with a guy writing the architectural plans on paper. That's not hard for him to do. Then laying the first beam isn't had. The whole thing is really hard. So, just take each step kind of piece by piece and when I was able to do that and stop trying to chase this prize and started putting in the work, things just started coming together.
