How to bypass Zip requirement

I am new to grav. I tried adding the skeleton template (grav-skeleton-ceevee-site+admin-1.1.0) to my root folder, but I get a “PHP Zip extension is required b…” message in the “PHP Modules:…” section of the landing page.

However when I contacted my hosting provider (fasthosts), I was told that they have a set php.ini for the package I am using and do not allow custom php.ini files.

Other then changing my hosting package or supplier, is there any way that will allow me to use grav without PHP Zip (with a hack maybe)?

im closing this as ive decided to change the hosting package.
