Is mcrypt Still Required Beyond PHP 7.1

Question

Hello -

Was looking into upgrading my PHP version while also upgrading to Blesta 4.6, however after some investigation it looks like they dropped support for mcrypt in PHP 7.2. Is this still required to run Blesta are is it fine without it?

Thanks

You should be fine on PHP 7.2 I use it I don't think it has Mcrypt I could be wrong though.

Guess I will wait to see what Paul says just to make sure. Mcrypt isn't bundled with PHP after 7.1 so you would have to do some workarounds just to install it. Don't want to go through the hassle of having to revert everything back if it doesn't work out.

Thanks.

OpenSSL is the alternative and has been for some time, which is already a minimum requirement of Blesta.

It will be any impact if upgrading from php 5.6 to php 7.2? as i know mcrypt is used for encryption/decrypting data, and blesta use it in password and encrypted data hashing, when running php 5.6 and blesta use it it would be impossible to decrypt old data without it in 7.2, is this true?
