Threaded View
I am having trouble getting the PHP PECL fileinfo component to work. I
am using Cakephp 1.2, XAMPP in WIndows Vista environment.

I have the following code:
$file = "C:\xampp\htdocs\app\webroot\pics\file.jpg";

$handle = finfo_open(FILEINFO_MIME,'c:/magic');
if (!$handle) {
   echo "Opening fileinfo database failed";

$mime_type = finfo_file($handle,$file);

I get the following output:
Opening fileinfo database failed
Warning (2): finfo_file(): supplied argument is not a valid file_info
resource [APP\controllers\users_controller.php, line 198]

I put the magic.mime file in the C:\ directory. I also added the
extension=php_fileinfo.dll line in the php.ini file.

Don't open a new thread. You were given some pointers in your last one. =

Did they work (I don't see them in your code)? If not: any other errors =
