php_mbstring extension check missing

Issue #379 open
Jan Turoň created an issue

Hello Christopher,

phpliteadmin should check and warn the user if extension=php_mbstring.dll is not installed. in version 1.9.8 if it is not installed, just blank interface appears and one must dig into the source code to find the source of the issue.

    Thanks for reporting. With commit b393d6da36441f5f99402725f3fa353bc037303b I added fallback functions and a warning. This means phpLiteAdmin will now work without mbstring, but may have issues with multibyte characters and thus displays a warning that installing mbstring is recommended.

    Yes, we are this strange project that always adds fallbacks for everything. This is because we try to run on almost any php installation out there without requiring anything special.
