Hello I got this message when going to survey url:

This script needs the PHP Multibyte String Functions library installed: See <a href='docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=Installation+FAQ'>FAQ</a> and <a href='de.php.net/manual/en/ref.mbstring.php'>PHP documentation</a><br />

There's not really any step by step help at these places.

Whats wrong... do I need to reinstall? and how do I do so without losing my data.

It was working fine before, with no one changing any code base so its a little unusual

It's something that needs to be activated on your server-side. There is usually no easy way to do it. I recommend you write to your webspace provider and ask them to activate it. They most likely upgraded PHP and forgot about it.
