Installation on unix system throws error with fileinfo requirement

I can’t progress through installation because I keep getting the warning that I need to have the php_fileinfo extension enable. However, I believe that because php_fileinfo extension is package with the most recent versions of PHP that it’s not considered an extension which causes the check to fail.

I could be way off but I believe that’s what is happening after inspecting the code. Someone more versed in this stuff might have better insight. I just think other people might come across this struggle.

Have you read this: How do I enable FileInfo in PHP

I did think it was bundled and enabled by default, but it might be worth checking your php.ini to double check. What nix environment are you running specifically?
