I get this error message on the phpMyAdmin login page:
- phpMyAdmin: Cannot load mcrypt extension. Please check your PHP configuration.
Does someone knows the reason for it?

The most likely explanation is that the mcrypt add-on for php is not installed.
Try logging in and running the following:
sudo apt-get install php5-mcrypt sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
I expect the first command will install the missing package. The second command restarts apache so that the mcrypt add-on is activated.
If you get a message that php5-mcrypt is already installed we'll have to do some more digging.
