I get the error message in phpmyadmin and cannot use some virtualmin install scripts because php-mcrypt is missing.
What I know so for is that mcyrpt is not supported or included in centos and have read numerous forums that post on how to install it particularly in cents 6.2 64. All have lead to dead ends with changed links or package not available. I have also tried the yum search in webmin and no luck. . I have also read posts in this forum that say its not necessary and can be disabled in php.ini. I found the correct php.ini for the VS, found the line "extension=mcrypt.so", commented it out and restated apache. When I run an install script, magento for instance I still get the "PHP module mcrypt is required" message and install fails.
On checking php.ini I see my lines that have been commented out but a new line have been added for "extension=mcrypt.so"
So I can't disable it and I can install it?
