when i install ss3.0.3 one of the conditions required is fileinfo should be enabled in PHP, how to enable fileinfo in PHP?
fileinfo should be enabled in PHP. SilverStripe uses it for MIME type detection of files. SilverStripe will still operate, but email attachments and sending files to browser (e.g. export data to CSV) may not work correctly without finfo.
