I have a big problem in installing mcrypt on my server... My version of php is 4.3.2 (is old) an I am trying to install mcrypt and I've got this error every time even though I had installed limcrypt also....
checking for libmcrypt - version >= 2.5.0... no
*** Could not run libmcrypt test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding LIBMCRYPT or finding the wrong
*** version of LIBMCRYPT. If it is not finding LIBMCRYPT, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error: *** libmcrypt was not found
Can anyone help me please... I need some suggestions .....
The error message gave you several ideas to try. First see if libmcrypt exists. This will also tell you the version as well by the numbers after the library, as in /usr/lib/libmcrypt.so.4.4.8. Then check is the path to libmcrypt exists in ld.so.conf. If it is a standard location like /usr/lib/ it probably does and running "ldconf" won't help, but you can always run "sudo /sbin/ldconfig" without harm. If the path to libmcrypt doesn't exist in /etc/ld.so.conf, then add it and run "sudo /sbin/ldconfig".
