PHP mcrypt extension installation under Windows XP / AppServ 2.5.10
===================================================================

Step 1 : Php.ini file
===========================
 - Locate the loading "php.ini" file, by default in the "C:\Windows" folder.  Edit it and uncomment (remove the semicolon) the following line:

    extension=php_mcrypt.dll

 - Elsewhere in the file is a line setting the path to the extension directory (i.e. where "php_mycrypt.dll" is located) -- search for "extension_dir" variable.
It should look something like:

    extension_dir = "C:\appserv\php5\ext\"

Step 2 : DLL files
===========================

 - Locate the file "libmcrypt.dll" in the directory "C:\appserv\php5". Copy the file to the following directories:

    From "C:\appserv\php5" folder to "C:\appserv\php5\ext" folder.

(To make sure that mcrypt doesn't fail to load when using Windows XP,
Apache 2 and php 5, even if all the required procedure to install it has been accomplished already, copy "libmcrypt.dll",
which is normally in the php main directory, into the "php\ext" directory, where it should already the "php_mcrypt.dll" file be)

    From "C:\appserv\php5" folder to "C:\windows\system32" folder.

Step 3 : Load configuration
===========================

 - Reboot your system.

 - Use the following PHP script to test your configuration:

    <?php
   
if(!extension_loaded('mcrypt')) { echo 'You are missing the <strong>mcrypt</strong> extension.'; }
    else {echo
'The <strong>mcrypt</strong> extension is installed correctly.'; }
   
?>

On ubuntu 8 (hardy), the mcrypt library seems to be here.

/usr/lib/php5/20060613/mcrypt.so

So I just created mcrypt.ini in /etc/php5/conf.d and added this one liner.

extension=mcrypt.so

Under IIS 7.5 - Win2k8r2 you must copy libmcrypt.dll under C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP

With Windows 7 (64 bits) I needed to uncomment the mcrypt line as well, so:
extension=php_mcrypt.dll

And after that I've copied the libmcrypt.dll to c:\Windows.

Apache restart (with administrator rights of course) and there you go.

To make sure that mcrypt doesn't fail to load when
using Windows XP , Apache 2 and php 5, even if all the required procedure to install it has been accomplished already, copy libmcrypt.dll, which is normally in the php main directory, into the php\ext directory.

Also on Ubuntu, make sure you actually have php5-mcrypt installed. You can install it with:

sudo apt-get install php5-mcrypt

If you get any errors, you may need to enable the 'universe' repository, explained here:

For Ubuntu Linux add a line:
extension=php_mcrypt.so
to the file /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
and restart network:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

(Relating to XAMPP Lite and MySQL)

PROBLEM (seen on MySQL admin page): cannot load mcrypt extension. please check your php configuration

SOLUTION:  With XAMPP Lite 1.7.1 all I had to do was stop the server, edit D:\xampplite\php\php.ini and uncomment (remove the semicolon) the following line:

extension=php_mcrypt.dll

Elsewhere in the file is a line setting the path to the extension directory (i.e. where php_mycrypt.dll is located) -- search for extension_dir.  It should look something like:

extension_dir = "\xampplite\php\ext\"

Obviously, adjust accordingly for your own drive and directory structure.

PROBLEM: cannot load mcrypt extension. please check your php configuration

this setting my experience for xampp :D
I do the same step but with a little modified

for the first, stop all xampp services, and then do this step :

copy file libmcrypt.dll from D:\xampplite\php\
to : C:\WINDOWS\system32

open these 2files below :
D:\xampplite\apache\bin\php.ini
D:\xampplite\php\php.ini

change this text :
;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
to
extension=php_mcrypt.dll
(ie. remove ; )

Note :
Please adjust the directory location per your own installation.

PROBLEM: cannot load mcrypt extension. please check your php configuration

I have done as suggested by the contributor before me and copied libmcrypt.dll from F:\wamp\bin\php\PHP52~1.8
to C:\WINDOWS\system32 . This did not work on it's own. I found other advice as follows and now mcrypt is working.

OTHER ADVICE:

Go to F:\wamp\bin\php\PHP52~1.8\php.ini
change ;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
to      extension=php_mcrypt.dll
(ie. remove ; )

now go to the following 2 files and do the same:
F:\wamp\bin\php\PHP52~1.8\phpForApache.ini
F:\wamp\bin\apache\APACHE~1.11\bin\php.ini

Please adjust the directory location per your own installation.

On Windows installations, for the dynamic extension (extension=php_mcrypt.dll) to load properly, you must copy libmcrypt.dll from your PHP root folder (e.g. C:\PHP) to the following location:

C:\WINDOWS\system32

With this done, the dynamic extension will load up just fine.
