Initially ubuntu server (LAMP) does not  include mcrypt for PHP. To install it, the following steps need to be done.

apt-get install php5-mcrypt
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Sometimes you might get the message “php5-mcrypt is already the newest version“. If so, install with:

apt-cache search php5-m
