suphp and mcrypt

Trying to setup a server to test a magento shopping cart. I thought I had everything setup but apparently not. When I try to configure a new magento cart I get this warning: PHP extension “mcrypt” must be loaded.

I’m unable to continue because of this.

My droplet is ubuntu 14.04

apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-mcrypt php5-gd php5-curl libapache2-mod-php5 mysql-server mysql-client php5-mysql libapache2-mod-suphp vftpd

my suphp.conf reads like this

<IfModule mod_suphp.c>

<FilesMatch “.ph(p3?|tml)$”>

SetHandler application/x-httpd-suphp


    AddType application/x-httpd-suphp .php .php3 .php4 .php5 .phtml
    suPHP_AddHandler application/x-httpd-suphp

<Directory />
    suPHP_Engine on

This droplet is replacing an old server that was configured a couple of years back. I always had permission problems until someone installed suphp for me. Although suphp wasn’t installed till quit some time after the previous server was provisioned so not sure if I should just temporarily disable suphp just to proceed and then enable it after, or if I’m just not configured properly.
