Solved User uploading attachment broke forum

I had a very trusted user damage the forum database (it wasn't malicious) and somehow caused 500 internal server errors if anyone views the forum. It appears all he was uploading was images but something went terribly wrong. I have uploaded image attachments without any problems before.

When I chose KUNENA FORUMS > TOOLS > DIAGNOSTICS it gave an error about "attachmentOrphaned". I manually deleted the image attachments from the Kunena media folder using FTP software. I had to go into the control panel and delete the attachment ID from the database.

Now I can view the forum properly without an error. However when I go into the Joomla backend and view the Kunena's Forum admin panel I get an error if I click the ATTACHMENTS option.
500 Internal Server Error
Fatal Error was detected!
 
The error was detected in the Libraries.
 
Fatal Error: Call to undefined function mb_strlen() in libraries/kunena/attachment/helper.php on line 479

Any ideas what could have caused this and how to fix?

UPDATE: Okay all fixed now. I needed to turn on mbstring functions in PHP on the server in the CPanel. Still don't know what caused the 500 server error to begin with. The attachment upload feature is too delicate if it can break the forum so easily.
