How can I tell if mcrypt is installed on my server? If it is not installed how do I install it?
look at a phpinfo file
if it isn't installed you can install it by running /scripts/easyapache and selecting option 5
What section of my phpinfo page would it be on? I did a search on the page for mcrypt & crypt but it found nothing.
You should see it in a few places.
1. The configure command should show it as '--with-mcrypt'
2. There should be a section listing as so.
mcrypt support enabled
mcrypt.algorithms_dir no value no value
mcrypt.modes_dir no value no value
or similar, if they are not there then mcrypt is not installed.
Another quick way to check.
In ssh type " php -i|grep mcrypt "
This is what I got in SSH...
root@thunder [~]# php -i|grep mcrypt
Zend Optimizer requires Zend Engine API version 20020429.
The Zend Engine API version 20021010 which is installed, is newer.
Contact Zend Technologies at http://www.zend.com/ for a later version of Zend Optimizer.
You don't have it installed. You can recompile php to include it by running /scripts/easyapache and selecting option 5.
Yeah, that is what I had to do. I did an Apache update the same way a month or so ago so I can not figure out why it didn't work the same then. Oh well it is installed/working now.
