Libsodium Support


Will Libsodium be supported on Dreamhost without the need for root access? I know it’s supposed to be native in the 7.2 version of PHP but I’m not exactly sure how it works and if you still need to install something extra.

From what I have learned so far, I believe I will still require a dedicated server with root access to use it.


Hello ParadiseStudios,

Thank you for contacting us!

We do not currently support Libsodium nor does that appear to change with the addition of PHP 7.2

If Libsodium requires root access now then you will still need a Dedicated server to use it. If anything changes we will be sure to post an update,
