It was back up and running, except with no access, all pages seemingly able to be viewed, except if you logged in, then it went dead. The hacker re - named it "Gone Information", register.com did a restore and I guess the re-start point was right when he was in the midst of his work? I changed the p...

I'm getting this error message when it's checking to see if everything is correct for install
"HTTP input character conversion is improperly configured"
HTTP output character conversion:
mbstring.http_output must be set to pass.
