I am installing Roundcube and it wants the PHP-Fileinfo extension. It does not seem to be available in the virtualmin bleeding edge repos, and I cannot find an RPM for it in the base CentOS repos. Any idea how I can go about obtaining an RPM of fileinfo for PHP 5.2.11 that is compatible with virtualmin?

You can probably use the PECL extension for that:

To install it, type “pecl install fileinfo” from the command line as root.


There we go, now it’s working. Had to install the php-devel package to get PECL.

Thanks =)
