Install PHP Mbstring

Install PHP Mbstring

PHP Mbstring => PHP Multibyte String. I am using Laravel framework for my application. I want to call Cron to check and delete some unwanted datas from table once a day.  Have implemented cron file in laravel and set cron in my Cpanel. But When it runs I got the following error message,
{“error”:{“type”:”Symfony\\Component\\Debug\\Exception\\FatalErrorException”,”message”:”Call to undefined function Symfony\\Component\\Console\\mb_convert_variables()”,”file”:”\/home\/stagingreme\/public_html\/vendor\/symfony\/console\/Symfony\/Component\/Console\/Application.php”,”line”:1154}}
But When I try to run Cron command in terminal Its works. So there in no mistake with my code side. After long research I have found PHP Mbstring extension is missing in my server. mb_convert_variables() is one of the calling function of Mbstring extension.
