[nycphp-talk] mcrypt_encrypt

What am I looking for?  I've never seen phpinfo() where mcrypt was
--disable-posix-threads in the configuration command or something in
additional .ini files parsed?  Would it list mcrypt explicitly?

What does phpinfo() show?

Maybe you will have to. But more importantly, your hosting provider will 
have to be told/convinced.
