I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

a webbased system that we can use as a knowlegde base and that is programmed mainly in php.
Open source as well
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?

Hi itbabe,

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.

Check out this list of PHP Wiki's (which itself is hosted on a WiKi site)

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

Best regards,

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.
