The following extensions are missing! (ext/fileinfo)

Post by KT_ » Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:56 pm

Playing around with upgrading to phpMyFaq 2.9.9 and getting this at the new setup page:
The following extensions are missing! Please enable the PHP extension(s) in php.ini.
  • ext/fileinfo
But when I run php -i I see: "--enable-fileinfo=shared" in the configure options. Plus 2.8 has worked fine forever (well, at least until recently when I encountered another problem I posted about).

Any suggestion on where I should start looking?

Hi,

do you see the fileinfo section in a phpinfo page?

Thank you for getting back to me. As it turns out I had to explicitly activate it in phprc by adding:

Code: Select all

extension=fileinfo.so
If anyone else is on Dreamhost and runs into the same issue, hopefully this helps.
