Diff for MimeMagic between 8 and 9

Although this is not how to related to horde, I am posting this here as fileinfo is quite useful and I couldnt get it working for quite some time.



1. Read the [http://www.horde.org/horde/docs/?f=INSTALL.html /horde/doc/INSTALL]

2. {{pear install fileinfo-beta}} will not work on RHEL without the following package.

3. Get the latest file package from ftp://ftp.gw.com/mirrors/pub/unix/file/

4. Install it with {{./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install}}

5. then {{pear install fileinfo-beta}} note: it is now changed to {{pecl install fileinfo-beta}}

6. Add the following in {{php.ini}}

<code>

;Magic<code>
;Magic mime time

mime_magic.magicfile
mime_magic.magicfile = "/usr/share/file/magic.mime"



extension=fileinfo.so



;;;;

;

extension=fileinfo.so

;;;;
; Note: For Red Hat Linux, packaged extension modules are now loaded via

; the
; the ini files in the directory /etc/php.d.

;;;;

</code>

;;;;
</code>
so also add in {{/etc/php.d/fileinfo.ini}}

<code>
<code>
extension=fileinfo.so

</code>

7. restart apache and check {{/horde/test.php}}. At this point I got MIME Magic Support: Yes



I get the following errors in {{/var/log/httpd/error_log}}, not sure how to get rid of them and if it hampers the fileinfo functioning.

<code>

Request for anyone who has done the above in a proper way, do share and modify what needs to be done right.

Note: If you're getting //**Function registration failed - duplicate name**// errors, you probably have the module registered twice as an extension.

As an example, modules are loaded (on ``FreeBSD``) from /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini.  If you had an entry for fileinfo.so inside extensions.ini,

and then you added another "extension=fileinfo.so" in php.ini - it would try to load twice (once from extensions.ini and once from php.ini), causing 

the above errors.  I realize the location and names of files may be different on a Red Hat system, and I use ``FreeBSD`` - but the explanation is

still valid.

For Fedora Core 4, do the following:



1. {{yum install php-devel}}

2. {{pear install fileinfo}}

3. Add the following in {{php.ini}}

<code>

;Magic mime time

mime_magic.magicfile = "/usr/share/file/magic.mime"



extension=fileinfo.so



;;;;

;;;;
; Note: For Red Hat Linux, packaged extension modules are now loaded via

; the ini files in the directory /etc/php.d.

;;;;

</code>
</code>
so also add in {{/etc/php.d/fileinfo.ini}}

<code>

extension=fileinfo.so

</code>

4. restart apache and check {{/horde/test.php}}. At this point I got MIME Magic Support: Yes

**NOTE: Most Unix-like systems doesn't correctly handle Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel MIME types. If you very heavy rely on these types, use integrated Horde MIME magic library instead. See [http://bugs.horde.org/ticket/?id=3565 bug #3565] for more info.**
