How do I go about getting the FileInfo extension installed on our server? We upload files and I want to have a bit more control over which mime types are uploaded. The user who does the uploads isn't always great at picking the right pdf file or mp3 file.

Hello apostles,

Thank you for your question. PECL fileinfo is only available on our VPS and Dedicated servers, since it requires a recompile.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
