I get the following error on my server (windows server with plesk 11):

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mcrypt_encrypt() in processLogin.php on line 30

I've tried PHP 5.2 and 5.3, the .ini files both contain the dll file.

How do I get the mcrypt_encrypt() function working?

Get hold of php_mcrypt.dll if you don't already have a copy in your PHP extensions directory and enable it in your php.ini file. You'll also need libmrypt.dll somewhere PHP can find it.
