Please let us know how you installed PHP (using Yum or source code) and how you are trying to install php-mcrypt. If the php is installed using YUM please give the output of
rpm -qa | grep php

Open in new window

Also please let us know the current PHP version installed on VDS.

Do you have any kind of a test bed for this application?  We do not want you to upgrade a production site without verification!

Yes, I had. Please kindly advice if you have any resolution to the above issue.

Yes, I had a test bed? Or yes, I had upgraded a production system without prior testing?

Is there any symptom of failure?  Any messages or data base corruption?  Anything at all to tell us what "not working" means?
