I got a clean installation of CentOS 6.3, with php 5.3.18. I tried installing the epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm and epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm in order to run

# yum install php-mcrypt

However it cannot find the package. Also tried

# yum install php53-mcrypt

but no luck.

Can Anyone point me on the right direction?

And where did you get php-5.3.18? – Michael Hampton Oct 26 '12 at 15:32
Could you please post the exact error you are getting after yum command ? – Abhijeet Kasurde Oct 26 '12 at 15:35
Can you post the exact error outputs? – bmurtagh Oct 26 '12 at 17:11
What is the output of yum repolist? If EPEL is not listed, it's either disabled in configuration or epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm did not install correctly. (Or, it's not reachable on the network.) – Aaron Copley Jan 15 '13 at 17:26

Install the EPEL REPO via:

rpm -Uvh

#OR .../x86_64/... for 64bit

then you can

yum install php-mcrypt
