    Does "Fileinfo" extension/module of PHP needed by XenForo?
    Is it a must have or just plain useless for XenForo script?

    We typically recommend that nothing is removed as even if it isn't currently being used, that doesn't mean it won't be in the future.

    Is there any reason you want to remove it?
    RoldanLT and Amaury like this.

    To save extra resources and extra memory.
    As Fileinfo, consumes more memory.

    What about this other extensions?
    • PHP Process Control extension
    • PHP intl extension
    • PHP SNMP extension
    For now please let me know if it's not needed.
