MCrypt on various OSCreated on 2018/01/27
This How-To will try to summarize various OS-Specific ways of installing the php-mcrypt extension.
Scientific Linux 6.2
as reported by Daniel here
I thought I’d pass along a tip related to the MCrypt library that Pydio requires. Neither the libmcryptpackage nor the php-mcrypt one (which I presume are PHP bindings for libmcrypt) is part of the SL 6.2 distibution, and they’re also not available from SL 6.2′s pre-configured download sites.
sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
sudo yum install php-mcrypt
Yum will install php-mcrypt and libmcrypt as a dependency, and you should be good to go.
This also works for other EL-like distributions: CentOS / RHEL
Debian / Ubuntu
apt-get install php-mcrypt
