I am not a Linux admin by any means so this is why I am reaching out to any EE that has knowledge to point me in the right direction.  

I have an Ubuntu 16.04 server running Apache2 for a Wordpress site.  I cloned it for dev purposes an I am trying to reconfigure the url for the Virtual Host as well as update the Wordpress conf database.

It looks like PHPMYADMIN is installed on this server, but I am not able to access it.  I did edit the apache2.conf to have a line
Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
service apache2 restart.  

When I do that I get mbstring missing error.
So I ran get-apt install php-mbstring  
Rebooted the server.  

No dice

I am pretty sure the PHP is 5.6 on this machine.
