OK, but I'm unsure of the syntax.  I've tried:

mime_magic.magicfile = /usr/share/misc/magic.mime
mime_magic.magicfile = "/usr/share/misc/magic.mime"

with no positive results.  The docs at php.net aren't explicit.

I knew that, but assumed that php needed to mod_mime_magic in
apache to work.

On first reading this I thought maybe you meant that a seperate
library extension was needed, but reading the docs at php.net says
that's not the case.  But now I'm not sure what you mean.  The
docs say that the only thing I need in php.ini is the reference to
magic.mime.  So back to correct syntax again....

 You rembmered to restart apache,

:')  I've been known to do this, but not this time :')
