Hello and thanks for contacting us. You can install Mcrypt via EasyApache 4 (EA4) if on VPS/Dedicated hosting. You'd need to use PECL if on Shared hosting.

Hello Northerncommunity1,

Thank you for contacting us about enabling mcrypt. on your server. All of our servers have mcrypt enabled by default, you can confirm this with a phpinfo page.  You can find out more about using mcrypt by looking at this post

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.

Missing PHP dependencies is outside of the scope of hosting support, but if you have a VPS this is something managed hosting support may be able to help with. It's difficult to say for sure without knowing what software you're trying to install, but for most issues where custom PHP configuration is involved, managed hosting would be a good avenue to explore.

I downloaded the php Mcrypt extension. How do I install it? I'm using a wordpress hosting account, the W-3000 one.

You can try the PEAR listing. Unfortunately, we don't have an installation guide for PECL modules. I recommend you contact our Live Support for further assistance.
