I am running all my hosting pacakges off a dv dedicated server and have root access to the server via ssh access. I am very new to the command line, but i woul say i have a basic understanding now.
I have followed mediatemple.com (the hosting company) instructions to install php5 on the server, it works ona domain basis.
I now want to install the mcrypt library, but this is not a supportedv install, its allowed as we have root access, but it leaves me slightly concerned about diving in without being confident about what im doing.
Has anyone done this before?
Can anyone advise the neccesary steps to install it? or a formular to follow when installing lphp libraries?
