After logging in to phpmyadmin, I ecountered the following error message at the foot of the page:
The mcrypt extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.
Solution that worked for me was to action the following:
gs2# apt-get install php5-mcrypt
gs2# ln -s /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini /etc/php5/mods-available/mcrypt.ini
gs2# php5enmod mcrypt
gs2# service nginx reload
gs2# service php5-fpm restart
In my case, that’s all I did!
