  • Hello,

    PHP7.0 from ondrej is already compiled with mcrypt. Just remove mcrypt module:

    sudo apt-get remove php7.0-mcrypt

    Then check if mcrypt is present with "php -m"

  • /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and there you search for extension=mcrypt.so and delete it. That fixed the issue for me. :)
