Unsure how to install mcrypt and reconfigure PHP
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
I have installed libmcrypt and mcrypt, but am unsure how to reconfigure Fedora Core-included
installation of PHP so that it recognizes mcrypt_ecb functions. I hate to put something like this on here
since it's not really a "bug", but I have googled it and searched this site thoroughly, and nobody seems
to be able to explain how to do it. Is it a matter of simply making sure the following files get created?
Or is there something I have to do to change the installation of PHP so that it recognizes mcrypt
functions? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, because my server was ready to go two months
ago, but mcrypt is what has been keeping me from uploading my website. And now, what with
upgrades galore and reinstallations, I'm too invested in mcrypt to simply say "to heck with it" and use a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 4 running Apache 2.0.3-x and PHP 5.0.4-x
Try to install mcrypt. Seriously, mcrypt needs to be added to the package, I think. If it's a licensing
issue, than make a deal with someone. These functions are too valuable not to include in a project this
PHP returns "function mcrypt_ecb not recognized"
I get 256-bit encryption of my users' passwords before they're entered into the database
Nothing I can think of. The attached link is a page I created to test the mcrypt function when I first
began using it on my Apache/PHP setup on my laptop. Now it's my work-o-meter to tell me when I've
figured this darn thing out or when it's still not working. :-/

php-mcrypt is not built because mcrypt is not enabled in the distribution; see
