I am running Plesk v8.2.0 and I have a program that needs mcrypt module installed but I cant find any relevent infromation on how to get mcrypt setup on Plesk. It is on a Unix based server.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to set this up?

Any infromation would be greatly appreciated



  1. It depends on the OS. I don’t think Plesk has a module or a drop-in solution for mcrypt.

  2. Mcrypt is a PHP module, and typically you can download this in some kind of package format.

    On RedHat, CentOS, or Fedora, I would suggest using the IUS repository. Otherwise you can look for the distribution, and php-mcrypt and there is likely a package available for it. If not, you can always compile it from source:

    If you do compile it from source, be sure to set php on the skip list (RPM-based distribution) so that it is not updated automatically, as that will break it’s functionality, until it is recompiled.

  3. From command line, do something like…

    yum install php-mcrypt.x86_64

    If that doesn’t work, then maybe do…

    yum search "mcrypt"

    .. to find the exact name of the file you want to install.
