I need to run a PHP application with uses GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic (GMP) library. By default, PHP for my "Launch" hosting plan does not recognize/is not compiled with GMP support. Is there any way to solve this?

Hello Maxims,

Thank you for your question. The GMP library can be setup, but it requires a VPS, or Dedicated server plan.

Since you are on a shared server (Launch plan), any changes we make to the server could affect other users in a shared setting.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

Any chance this has this changed since 2013?
Still no way to have GMP on a shared server?

Unfortunately, GMP is still not available on shared servers at this time. It can be installed on VPS or Dedicated server.
