Try an update first:
 apt-get update
 apt-get install php5-mcrypt

If that doesn't work, please show us the output of:
 lsb_release -a
and the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list

that seemed to work, my web application is saying that The mcrypt module is not configured to load with PHP. Please review the instructions for enabling mcrypt in the PHP manual.

they are pointing me towards the following link

http://us.php.net/manual/en/mcrypt.installation.php

how do i find my php.ini file using ssh? and furthermore how to i edit it?

I think you may just need to enable the module with:
 sudo a2enmod php5-mcrypt

Or possibly just restarting apache.
 sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
