Posted July 27, 2014 41.8k views

Hi all. After i installed phpMyAdmin on NginX, i found that mcrypt extension wasn’t enabled yet. I tried enabling mcrypt extension by this command :“sudo php5enmod mcrypt” and restart nginx. But it didn’t work. Please help me :)

Hi Hoang!

I had the same issue however I am not using phpMyAdmin. I found this and it worked like a charm..

apt-get install php5-mcrypt

Create symlink to mods-avaliable

ln -s /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini /etc/php5/mods-available/mcrypt.ini

Enable It.

php5enmod mcrypt

Restart php-fpm

service php5-fpm restart

Restart nginx

sudo service nginx restart
