I have tried everything but I not able to fix this error. I installed PHP by downloading it and then ran:
brew install php55-mcrypt
I had initially installed it with PHP 5.3 then Laravel complained that it has to be greater than 5.4. So everything got messed up.
I am on MAC 10.7. Can someone help me?
php -v PHP Warning: PHP Startup: mcrypt: Unable to initialize module Module compiled with module API=20090626 PHP compiled with module API=20121212 These options need to match in Unknown on line 0 PHP 5.5.1 (cli) (built: Aug 14 2013 10:31:02) Copyright (c) 1997-2013 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.5.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2013 Zend Technologies
brew reinstall mcrypt --build-from-source php56-mcrypt --build-from-source
Build from source is an option which will force brew to compile from source rather than using a bottle.
Since you had a previous installation of PHP (5.3), and now you just installed a newer version (5.5.1), maybe the new PHP installation are pointing to some old locations.
Look for any
php.ini you’re using, and verify the
The last suggestion would be to reinstall PHP 5.5.1.
The warning is because of mismatch between php-mcrypt module version and php version in the server. I am not that familiar with brew as I am a Macports user however depending on your unix ditro you can do something like:
yum list installed | grep php55
Sample output: ======= php55-gd.x86_64 5.2.14-2.el5.art installed php55-imap.x86_64 5.2.14-2.el5.art installed php55-mbstring.x86_64 5.2.14-2.el5.art installed **php55-mcrypt.x86_64 5.1.6-15.el5.centos.1 installed** php55-mysql.x86_64 5.2.14-2.el5.art installed =======
We can see the php-mcrypt module associated with earlier version of PHP.
How to fix the error?
Update php-mcrypt module to fix the error.
yum update php-mcrypt
hope that helps
