XAMPP and mcrypt

Hi all,
I installed PHP thru the XAMPP package on my windows machine.

The problem, I couldn't solve, is that the mcryppt funcs don't work.
It return the following message:
Call to undefined function mcrypt_decrypt( ) ...

If I write a
echo ***";
echo function_exists ("mcrypt_decryp t");
echo function_exists ("mcrypt_encryp t");
echo "***";
it return nothing between the six asterisks.

I downloaded the libmcrypt.dll and copied it under c:\windows\syst em32
and erased the ";" in the extension=php_m crypt.dll line.

But it still doesn't work.

Anyone could help me?

Thank you

I don't use Windows, let alone XAMPP, but my first-blink question upon
reading this is ...
"libcrypt.d ll" or "php_mcrypt.dll ?" Which one is it supposed to be?

It's a good observation, I didn't noticed it. :-)

Anyway, since, after the installation, it didn't work, I followed the
instructions found on the php.net site

So I downloaded the DLL at http://ftp.emini.dk/pub/php/win32/mcrypt/
and followed the instruction in the README.txt

The extension_dir, as distributed by XAMPP, there is actually a
php_mcrypt.dll file.

I can interpret it this way.
In the php_mcrypt.dll there the functions I can use in my PHP code,
while in the libcrypt.dll there are the crypt algorytms.

Problem solved!

I modified the php.ini in the \apachefriends\ xampp\php directory while
I had to modify the one contained in \apachefriends\ xampp\apache\bi n.

Thank you everybody and excuse me if it was a silly problem.

I've written a php page which allows users to type in a text string and a key, then choose from a dropdown menu of encryption/decryption cyphers, and a method (encrypt, decrypt). The whole thing works, except the mcrypt command doesn't work. here is my mcrypt command: if ($method == 0) { //Encrypt $output = mcrypt_ecb ($algorithm, $key, $input, MCRYPT_ENCRYPT);

I'm writing an app that will use blowfish encryption.. PHP's mcrypt will be used if available. if not, I'll use PHPmyadmin's blowfish.php library. The problem is I can't figure out what initialization vector blowfish.php is useing (or if that's even my problem). ie, if I encrypt with blowfish.php and decrypt with mcrypt: /* include path to phpmyadmin '/libraries/blowfish.php'; */ $secret = 'secret';

Hello, My hosting company does not support the PHP mcrypt functions. Instead, they recomend using the command line, /usr/local/bin/mcrypt utility via PHP's exec method. Sadly, they do not provide any documentation how to do this. How would i translate the following function encryptString($p_str) { $iv_size = mcrypt_get_iv_size(MCRYPT_XTEA, MCRYPT_MODE_ECB); $iv = mcrypt_create_iv($iv_size, MCRYPT_RAND);

Hi, I'm getting some strange errors that I cannot pin down: Warning: mcrypt_generic_init(): Iv size incorrect; supplied length: 7, needed: 8 in...... This is strange because the data is encrypted, inserted into the databse, then later retrieved and decrypted with the necessary hash and ivector keys.

Long story short. I want to use Mac OS/X and PHP. I have a db with passwords stored under Linux using the crypt("foo", "$1$".$salt."$); scheme. This means that crypt should execute a CRYPT_MD5 password hash. I know that Mac OS/X only supports the two DES'. So is there a way I can use mcrypt, or mhash or ANY library to reproduce php's CRYPT_MD5 crypt() call? I don't really have a choice to use another password hash scheme, as the data is...
