How can a PHP extension be installed if php.ini does not exist?

I'm using Uniform Server and MediaWiki for a project. It is for personal use, so it is restricted to my machine. Uniform Server came with Apache 2.4.25, PHP 7.1.1, phpMyAdmin 4.6.6, and MySQL 5.6.35-community.

MediaWiki wants an extension called fileinfo. According to the installation instructions, I have to remove the semicolon from the beginning of the line referencing php_fileinfo.dll in the php.ini file. However, php.ini doesn't exist. Is it possible to install fileinfo without using php.ini?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
