My problem is that I don't know whether a GoDaddy shared server provides the following extensions which are required for Laravel 5.0?

  • PHP >= 5.4 with all common Extension and also
  • Mcrypt PHP Extension
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extention

and for my project purpose

  • Fileinfo PHP Extension and
  • GD PHP Extention

The odds are they support those modules as they are pretty basic and standard one's. But to be sure you can make use of a simple PHP function to confirm they are indeed enabled.

Create a PHP script and make its contents the following:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

This will tell you all about the PHP modules (and more) that are enabled as well as what version of PHP you are using.
