Hello Jacob,

Thank you for your question. I am unable to locate an account for you based on the information given, so I will need to speak in general terms.

This type of error generally means that the extension is not enabled within your php. You will need to attempt to enable this by editing your php.ini file for that cPanel account. To enable the extension, simply add the following line of code to your php.ini file:

This should activate the extension and allow its use if it is on the server. For us, the zip extension is activated by default on all servers, so simply adding that line of code should work for you.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
