Is sodium missing from 7.2?



  • andrew.n
    Yes it is as this is the replacement of mycrypt in php 7.4

    Michael doesn't hang around the forums too much anymore, but I'm happy to help! Currently I don't have any updates to provide. I do see there is a case open with our developers to get that added to the product, but it hasn't happened yet. You're always welcome to request an update here and I can check things for you.

    Hey, are there any news on the topic "sodium" PHP extension in EasyApache? I'm really rarely this direct and frustrated, but it's a shame that cPanel did not get this done the last 3 years since when the sodium library got bundled with PHP 7.2 in standard installation, instead of providing a separated PECL module to install; cPanel just ignores this change until today and more and more software packages are not usable on cPanel hosted environments, like Shopware 6 (released 2019) :( kind regards, Sven B. 8)

    I have a tiny update. It looks like this is possibly, not guaranteed, scheduled for version 100.

    Hi @cPanelAnthony, can you give us any Update on this topic? The PHP-Module "Sodium" didn't make it into 100 as I noticed, timeline for "Shopware 5" is nearing EOL and still no chance to update to - or even evaluate - version 6 on cPanel hosted servers after 2 / 3 years... :( kind regards Sven B. 8)

    @Cyber911 I will look into this and see if I can get you an update.
