Mcrypt PHP extension required saying while installing laravel?

Yah I’ve faced this problem several times while installing laravel with composer, I’m using Ubuntu 13.10. its very weird problem really. I got this error message when I entered this command.

[php]php artisan serve[/php]

The error message is like this

mcrypt requered ubuntu



But the point is its already installed in my system.

You have to enter below command to solve this

sudo ln -s /etc/php5/conf.d/mcrypt.ini /etc/php5/mods-available
sudo php5enmod mcrypt
sudo service apache2 restart

You are done I think now run the command again, I’m also learning laravel 😛

Ow! Robert gave me the solution 🙂
