The mcrypt extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.

After logging on 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:

en-01# apt-get install php5-mcrypt
en-01# ln -s /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini /etc/php5/mods-available/mcrypt.ini
en-01# php5enmod mcrypt
en-01# service nginx reload
en-01# service php5-fpm restart

In my case, that’s all I did!
