Does anyone know of a good way to install LAMP on an RHEL 64 bit server which includes mcrypt? I went the manual route, and libmcrypt was not found even though it had been installed. I've tried every posted way on several forums with no success. I tried this:

Especially the part where the poster suggests to install DAG rpm. I did that, but yum install mcrypt shows there is no package to install. Then I read elsewhere that even if it did install that I would need the 64 bit version. Can anyone help????

I may be mistaken but i believe the package is php-mcrypt, not mcrypt.

yum install php-mcrypt 

with the DAG repo installed should do the trick.
