Hello there, i am totally new to all this haven't got a clue what to do. I have just downloaded silverstripe 3 to my laptop and then ftp it to my server. when i run install the first warning is php configuration file info support ... fileinfo should be enabled in PHP. SilverStripe uses it for MIME type detection of files. SilverStripe will still operate, but email attachments and sending files to browser (e.g. export data to CSV) may not work correctly without finfo.

All gobbledy Gook to me what do i do ?
I know its probs something simple but really need advice please guys
