You just put the same words in a different order...

You mean you want any OpenSource PHP application so you can see how it does stuff?

Please explain what type of knowledge base system you wants. I think if your familiar with that system (cognetic science ..etc) and if you knows PHP , then you can implement you algrithms. Please let me know your requirement.

Hi,

I've found a huge number of open source knowledge base projecs based on PHP ... but I'm not sure if you might better have a look yourself and decide which project best fits to your needs: http://sourceforge.net/search/?words=php+knowledge+base&type_of_search=soft

Hi

I have fairly recently set up a knowledge bases system in the reserch department in which I was working.
I found that a wiki based solution worked very well. Take a look at mediawiki http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki
which is open source, and written in php.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
that's messed up! MediaWiki is the first item in the list I referred to.
