PHP FileInfo Error When Installing PrestaShop – MAMP Windows 10


Customer-UK – horrible service – I hold an account with #Justhost and I wanted to renew my account. For the last 3 days I called them and emailed them with no luck. They transferred me to billings, renewals, technical team and back finding different excuses to delay the process and force me to pay an outrageous renewal invoice. Once they get you in the loop, they ask for some unconsiderable renewal prices and are terribly unhelpful on the phone. If you want to talk to a supervisor, they are not available. I have never experienced such a bad customer service. I would rather find a different domain and host provider than stay with them.


I recently tried to install PrestaShop on my localhost powered by MAMP on Windows 10 and got an error.

I checked the php extensions directory and the file was present but was not included in php.ini

The easy fix is to just locate your php.ini file and add the two lines
extension=php_fileinfo.dll
extension=php_intl.dll
