We have an RHEL5 server that I'm trying to install PHP-Mcrypt on and I'm stuck when I tried to run ./configure for mcrypt source files.
I was using this guide: http://atlantatechpro.com/howtos/howtoslinux/howtosmhashmcrypt
When I try to install (./configure) mcrypt, I get this
checking for libmcrypt - version >= 2.5.0... no
Could not run libmcrypt test program, checking why... The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means that the run-time linker is not finding LIBMCRYPT or finding the wrong version of LIBMCRYPT. If it is not finding LIBMCRYPT, you'll need to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that is required on your system
If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error: * libmcrypt was not found
I also made a file at
/usr/local/libmcrypt in it and ran
I might have screwed things up by trying to reinstall libmcrypt without the configure arguments.
Any suggestions on what to do now?
