Class 'finfo' not found during installation v8.2.1

Permalink
{"error":{"message":"Class 'finfo' not found"},"errors":["Class 'finfo' not found"]}

I use Dreamhost.

I enabled PHP fileinfo per Dreamhost instructions:

https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/214205858-How-do-I-enab...

My phprc file is as follows:

; {{{ The following lines were automatically added by DreamHost
zend_extension=opcache.so
extension = fileinfo.so
; }}} That's all from DreamHost


My site is called greatreasons.org and you can call up phpinfo() byhttp://greatreasons/phpinfo.php...

Any help much appreciated.

Sorry, forgot to mention that it looks like most of the installation went okay, but failed quite a way in.

Hi All:

Just taking stabs in the dark I changed the phprc file to read:

; {{{ The following lines were automatically added by DreamHost
zend_extension=opcache.so
zend_extension = fileinfo.so
; }}} That's all from DreamHost


And the installation went through finally and I am now poking around the dashboard, etc. So I think that done it.

One thing I am worried about is that I -R 777d the directories per paragraph 4 ofhttps://documentation.concrete5.org/developers/installation/installa... How much of a security risk is that?

I am going to try to use suexec and go back to 775, but the Dreamhost documents about how to do this was way over my head so it may take some time. Thanks all.
