hi i am trying to install magento
i have a dedicated server with fast hosts (ubunto)
after running the magento-check.php. it comes up with the following errors

Your server does not meet the following requirements in order to install Magento.
The following requirements failed, please contact your hosting provider in order to receive assistance with meeting the system requirements for Magento:

    * You are missing the curl extension
    * You are missing the mcrypt extension

i have spoke to fast hosts with out much luck.
i have read on this site that fasthost dedicated server support theses extensions.
do i need to change my server to a different operating system??
thank you

1 - You may want to secure your server by renaming the phpinfo.php script. It delivers too much information to be left open for any script kiddie to come and penetrate your server

2 - It shows no support for mcrypt or curl.

3 - Are you running the standard server from fasthost? they probably have a version, maybe not Unbuntu-based, which might be easie for you to use...
