PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function Intervention\Image\finfo_buffer()

An error that says “Call to undefined function Intervention\Image\finfo_buffer()”. This error can occur if the PHP fileinfo extension is not installed or enabled on your system.

The fileinfo extension is used by the Intervention/Image package to determine the type of image files that you’re trying to manipulate. Without this extension, you won’t be able to use the Image class to open and manipulate image files.

To fix this error, make sure the fileinfo extension is installed and enabled on your system. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Open your php.ini file and find the line that says ;extension=fileinfo. This line is a comment and is not currently enabling the fileinfo extension.
  2. Remove the ; at the beginning of the line to uncomment it, so that it looks like this: extension=fileinfo
  3. Save the php.ini file and restart your web server.

Once you’ve done this, the fileinfo extension should be enabled and you should be able to use the Intervention/Image package to manipulate image files.
