    This extension is enabled by default as of PHP
    5.3.0. Before this time, fileinfo was a PECL extension but is no
    longer maintained there. However, versions prior to 5.3+ may use
    the » discontinued PECL extension.

    Windows users must include the bundled php_fileinfo.dll DLL file in php.ini to enable this extension.

    The libmagic library is bundled with PHP, but
    includes PHP specific changes. A patch against libmagic named
    libmagic.patch is maintained and may be
    found within the PHP fileinfo extensions source.
