    Hello folks,

    I have installed phpmyadmin package trough ispconfig update ... it works well, but I want use phpmyadmin for more than one mySQL server ... I configurated it, but if I log in I see this error message

    Cannot load mcrypt extension. Please check your PHP configuration.

    I tried make changes in /root/ispconfig/php/php.ini but all my attempts wasn't sucess.

    In main apache mcrypt works and when I try use extension from main php it doesn't work.

    Have somebody any idea?

    Thank you

    You will have to recompile the ISPConfig PHP and add mycrypt support or you create a website for phpmyadmin on your main webserver and install it there.

    The last ISPConfig release (2.2.26) comes with mcrypt support, so all you have to do is upgrade. :)

    mcrypt is deprecated and was moved to pecl.

    If you need it for some reason then you can compile and install it via the pecl command (which I think is included in php-pear), but I wouldn't recommend it unless you need it for some old legacy PHP code that is not possible to upgrade but requires it.

    Depending on the PHP package maintainer mcrypt might be also available as a deb package, but I'm more of a Red Hatter so may be someone else might be able to answer that question.

    On Debian and Ubuntu, you install it with apt for the PHP version you need it for. Example:

    apt install php7.4-mcrypt

    and please do not reopen such old threads. This thread is for ISPConfig 2, which is a completely different software than ISPConfig 3.2 that you are using, so nothing described in the thread above applies to your setup anyway.
