As it says in the message, you need to install the 'mcrypt' PHP extension.  On Ubuntu, I did that thru the package manager, you can probably do the same on CentOS.

You can install mcrypt library from EPEL repoistory -

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm
yum install php-mcrypt*

Open in new window

no, you only need to restart your web server.

Assuming you are using Apache  -
service httpd restart
