  • Ubuntu 18.04 and mcrypt php extension

    Hi,

    I am about to install Espo on a Ubuntu 18.04 server and notice mcrypt php extension is no longer available by default (as Ubuntu 18.04 ships with PHP 7.2 and in PHP 7.2 mcrypt has been removed).

    The php extension mcrypt is shown as a requirement on the following page: https://www.espocrm.com/documentatio...configuration/
    However, it is not shown as a requirement on the following page: https://www.espocrm.com/documentatio...configuration/

    Please can you advise if I need the mcrypt php module to successfully run the latest version of Espo? Or will it work fine without it.

    If its needed I'm considering deploying on Ubuntu 16.04 with PHP 7.0/7.1 (as mcrypt is included) but I prefer to go with the latest OS and PHP version if possible.

    Thanks,
    Alex

        Thanks... good to know mcrypt is no longer needed. I just found a way to install mcrypt in PHP7.2 but I understood it was deprecated and not going to be updated so better not to use it.

        Thanks for fixing. I see mcrypt is removed from the second line of code under "PHP Requirements" heading but I still see a reference to mcrypt in the 3rd line. Should mcrypt also be removed from the 3rd line? I'm talking about the following page:
