Mcyrypt code not working anymore

Recommended Posts

I recently migrated to a new server and installed the latest version of PHP 4. I am also running Mcrypt.

The problem is, code I used to sue to encrypt and decrypt information is not longer working.

Below is a sample of the code that used to work. I suspect that mcrypt no longer supports my methodology. If someone could provide me with an alternative to doing exactly what you see below, I would be most grateful.


$key = "112233445566";
$ScrambleThis = "This text shall be scrambled";
echo $ScrambleThis;

$Scrambled = base64_encode(mcrypt_ecb(MCRYPT_BLOWFISH,$key,$ScrambleThis,MCRYPT_ENCRYPT));
echo "<p>".$Scrambled;

$UnScrambled = mcrypt_ecb(MCRYPT_BLOWFISH,$key,base64_decode($Scrambled),MCRYPT_DECRYPT);
echo "<p>".$UnScrambled;
