Bug Description


I find a behaviour which is very strange.

Mahara 18.10 NEW installation ...maybe affects further versions

Ubuntu 16.04.x

If the OS-package "php-mbstring" is missing the installation work execpt the last step.
The last step local-post-install crash.
The next step you see is the homepage itself.
There is no way to login, because there are no valid admin-information given in post-installation process.
Only error log of apache shows an error concerning mb-string.

Maybe it's possible the check the prerequistes on the beginning of the installation process

Yes, I agree that any/all required packages should be checked before install script is run so this will need to be fixed up
