Seems that something has gone wrong with the file uploads. The template is ok since I just installed it without any issues. If you have cPanel or similar make a zip of your local developed site, upload and extract in cPnel files system and reload with phpmyadmin the database (mind your configuration.php!)

Hi Leo
Thanks for your reply,
I have tried this several times, I have even tried installing a different template , created new database each time, etc. and I get the same error each time..

Any more ideas? I think it has something todo with the .htaccess or php.ini file?

It looks like PHP does not support mbstring. You should try to enable your PHP installation to support mbstring.
