    Hello,

    I wish to use mcrypt as wordpress's bot check plug-in requires it.
    Upon tyring the plug-in, it seemed that my server is not supporting the mcrypt.
    My question is how to install it?

    It seems to be quite complicated thing. Firstly, i need to check whether mcrypt has been installed or not? I am not sure how to check it. Second, mcrypt seems to be linked to apache and php. It appears that I need to rebuild the apache under cpanel. I am not sure if this is a dangerous act. Thirdly, do i need to modified php.ini to get it work as the last step?

    Any advice?

    Shall I need to manually install mcrypt piror to run the easyapache or update apache in WHM? Will easyapache or WHM take care of the actual program installation?

    I am also need to enable GDlib. Can it be done in the same way? How can I check if GD program has actually installed or not?
