seams to have install... but after httpd restart, it's still not in phpinfo, and cause error searching for "php_mcrypt.dll"
i've search the entire server for the dll... not found...
A .dll file is a windows dynamic library, so I guess you've done something wrong...
After a search in rpm.pbone.net, there exist php-mcrypt-5.2.17 packages for RHEL5. You can download the one that fits your distro/arch and install it using rpm
php is not at all in the rpm list, seams to have been compile with apache on WHM/cPanel install
Are you sure php was compiled from source? In this case you cannot add a php extension using a rpm package, while php was compiled from source
Either install everything related to php using yum, or uninstall those php packages and keep reading.
as for the 2 mcrypt, on yum install of php-mcrypt, i386 and x64 are installed
The package management tool (yum) does not install packages for both architectures. If it was, there should be noted in the package name, e.g. php-mcrypt-5.2.17-1.el5-x86_64.art
there is a mcrypt.ini, with this code:
; Enable mcrypt extension module
but does not seams to have been loaded
That mcrypt.ini was created by yum, but it's not loaded because your php does not know about it. Besides as already mentioned above, you cannot load a precompiled extension into a php compiled from source.
What you can do in case php was compiled from source, is to uninstall those php packages and then go into the php sources directory (e.g. /php-5.2.17). In that directory, as root, run the following
Check php.ini and make sure the "extension = mcrypt.so" in uncommented
