merge bbpress to myBB fails - TLA - 2018-12-05

Hi all,

I've been trying to merge my bbpress db to mybb, but so far have had no success. Mind you that this is all taking place on a virtual box running Unbuntu 18.04, with a localhost install of mybb.
I noticed with Merge that php 7.2 didn't play well so I am now running php 7.1 .
Merge runs the requirements and passes, then I select the bbpress option at the board selection. By doing so, the next page gives me this warning on top of the page:

Quote:Warning [2] Declaration of BBPRESS_Converter::get_group_id($gids) should be compatible with Converter::get_group_id($gids, $remove = Array) - Line: 0 - File: merge/boards/bbpress.php PHP (Linux)

Also a table below listing the affected files (?):
File                                                       Line                     Function

/merge/resources/class_error.php          60                       errorHandler->error
/merge/index.php                                  465                    debugErrorHandler->error
/merge/index.php                                  465                      require_once

I can then configure and connect to the database fine.
this does give me the same warning, with a different table, same files as above, but different lines (1019 for the latter 2).
When I then run the users module, a fatal error is displayed below the process bar:

Quote:Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mb_strlen() in /var/www/mybb/merge/resources/class_converter_module.php:169 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/mybb/merge/resources/modules/users.php(197): Converter_Module->prepare_insert_array(Array, 'users') #1 /var/www/mybb/merge/boards/bbpress/users.php(39): Converter_Module_Users->insert(Array) #2 /var/www/mybb/merge/index.php(946): BBPRESS_Converter_Module_Users->import() #3 {main} thrown in /var/www/mybb/merge/resources/class_converter_module.php on line 169

How can I fix all of this?
