Enable cURL on w.org production server?

The script that updates our ip2location database tables relies on cURL to download the newest data files. We’ve been running this script manually on sandboxes for a couple of years and it has always completed without errors. Recently we set up a cron job to run this script automatically, which means it now happens on the production server instead of a sandbox. However, during its inaugural run today, it failed with a curl: command not found error message.

Would it be possible to enable cURL on production so this script can run there?
