I have updated my php to version 5.4.13 etc and well in the terminal my version of php states this

   PHP 5.4.12 (cli) (built: Mar 16 2013 21:46:23)

But running a composer install io get the following error.

  The requested PHP extension ext-mcrypt * is missing from your system

Anyway i have tried several emthods to get this to work etc and nothing:

I have used the following: Solution One and Solution Two, they both use a similar approach but i stil ge the errors.

I then did a php info test and this shows that the version is 5.3.15 and that mycrypt says mcrypt support is enabled

So is my server using this php and the one in my terminal using another as this what it seems

Any ideas how to fix this?

I am using a MAC Mountain Lion with Mountain Lion Sever (latest), xcode and all operations are up to date and i have restarted the server.

Well I simply went back to basics and uninstalled Mac Server and went back to MAMP, this performed all the latest updates and installs required, as my system was conflicting with two separate installs etc
