Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

Changed in php-mcrypt (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

sudo apt-get purge php5-mcrypt && sudo apt-get install php5-mcrypt does not resolve this issue.

I confirm the bug and the previous workaround did NOT solve the problem:

"sudo apt-get purge php5-mcrypt && sudo apt-get install php5-mcrypt does not resolve this issue."

This does solved it:

Check if mcrypt is not enabled:

root@prod:/etc/php5/mods-available# php -m | grep mcrypt

Symlinks to the wrong mcrypt.ini as a workaround:

root@prod:/etc/php5/mods-available# ln -sf /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini .

Enabled the mcrypt mod:

root@prod:/etc/php5/mods-available# php5enmod mcrypt

Check if it was enabled:

root@prod:/etc/php5/mods-available# php -m | grep mcrypt

Restart services:

root@prod:/etc/php5/mods-available# service apache2 restart
