install php5-mcrypt ubuntu 14.04 (php-fpm)

I’m going to assume you already have nginx and php-fpm installed and running.

  1. php5-mcrypt should be installed already (it comes bundled with php5-fpm). Just for safety,
    apt-get install php5-mcrypt
  2. Create symlink to mods-avaliable,
    ln -s /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini /etc/php5/mods-available/mcrypt.ini
  3. Enable it.
    php5enmod mcrypt
  4. Restart php-fpm,
    service php5-fpm restart
  5. Restart nginx,
    service nginx restart

Done!
