I don't understand the question.

Are you talking about MIME types?

Did you store the Content-type information? If not, you'll have to look at the file contents. (See the unix file command as an example.)

For certain image types you can use the PHP exif_imagetype [php.net] function. Anything other than images you may have to use either a system command as mentioned. PHP once had a function called mime_content_type [us.php.net] but that has been deprecated. File Information [php.net] is looking to be it's replacement.
