[Solved] Disabling the PHP mcrypt Extension

Postby muno » 25. October 2012 01:30

Hello,

I'm trying to disable the mcrypt PHP extension to test my program without it and having hard time finding how.

I was advised to remove extension = php_mcrypt.dll in php.ini but I cannot find it.

I'm using the portable version of XAMP 1.8.1 on Windows XP.

Thanks in advance.

Since PHP 5.3 mcrypt is connected statically with the PHP Binaries. There is no .dll any more you can disable.

Oh really. I'll try with an older version then. One of my users claims my program doesn't work with an error relating to mcrypt so I have to test without it. Thanks for answering.

Okay, I downloaded xampp-win32-1.7.1-installer.exe found from this page http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Windows/ That version had PHP v5.2.9 and I could find the line, extension=php_mcrypt.dll. in php.ini. After commenting it out and restarting Apache, the extension was successfully disabled.
