Hi

restarting may solve the problem, or if you dont need mcrypt extension, simply disable it in php.ini file.

in php.ini, just search for
Code:
extension=php_mcrypt.dll
and add semi-colon ; in the start of the line, and restart the server.

Thank you imagefree

Just one quick Question

What does the mcrypt dll do.

I have used WAMP before, but never seen this.

The WAMP install is the latest. So this must be new I guess.

thank you

It contains hashing and encryption routines used for cryptography. You are unlikely to use any of these as they tend to be less commonly used, at least in PHP web apps. Things like MD5 and SHA1 are still in the normal PHP codebase and don't require this separate extension.

If you do ever find you need it you can always just download it.

Code:
extension=php_mbstring.dll
;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
;extension=php_mhash.dll
;extension=php_mime_magic.dll


I found it like this.. The semicolon was already there...

Probably you may have to remove the semicolon and try. The wamp setup maybe using mcrypt but is unable to load it since it is diabled in php.ini.

Here is a thread which might help http://www.wampserver.com/phorum/read.php?2,31900,31908

Followed link and tried this

Edit: I think I skip that part on my guide, so just left click on wamp tray icon, then click on PHP, then PHP Extensions and scroll down and click on php_mcrypt


Worked...

I added this to my online tutorial..
