PHP Question

Install php-mcrypt on CentOS 6

I have been trying to install php-mcrypt for a while now. Everytime I get the "No package php-mcrypt available." returned to me. Here's what I've tried:

root@ip-********** [~]# yum install php-mcrypt --enablerepo=centosplus (<- both with and without this)
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: p3plmirror01.prod.phx3.secureserver.net
* centosplus: p3plmirror01.prod.phx3.secureserver.net
* epel: mirrors.solfo.com
* extras: p3plmirror01.prod.phx3.secureserver.net
* updates: p3plmirror01.prod.phx3.secureserver.net
centosplus | 3.5 kB 00:00
centosplus/primary_db | 746 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
No package php-mcrypt available.
Error: Nothing to do


I have made sure to install the EPEL repository. At this point I'm just stumped. I've followed EVERY tutorial I've found online and get the same error.

Notes: Go Daddy VPS, CentOS 6.4 64-bit, mcrypt installed without a hitch, but no php-mcrypt.

Answer

Just a heads up to anyone else who is interested. I was able to figure it out. It was alot simpler then i thought. Under the WHM manager go to: Home >> Software >> EasyApache (Apache Update) >> There you have two options "Build Profile" or "Customize Based On Profile". I went Customize to keep my current config then followed the instructions on the page. Eventually there was a place to add and remove php modules. There you will find ever module under the sun. Just select the one you want and rebuild the profile. It was really that simple.

I hope this helps someone!
