I am trying to find the correlation(similarities) between records of a database using PHP. I would like to do this using arrays. Any suggestions on how this could be implemented as I have not found any ressouces on the topic.
could you explain what you mean with correlation (maybe an example could help)? is it in a statistical sense?
Please do not over-do it with the punctuation. One exclamation mark is quite enough.
Can you post the code you have tried, using code tags?
I am actually trying to develop a web application that will recommend products to a user depending on his preferences.
The user will answer simple questions on a form and after submitting the form the matching product will be returned.
But to do so i need to compare the user input to the products by finding their similarities; the more similar they are the better the match.
This is what i cannnot figure out by now; i have made the form and connected it to my MySQL database and i can run simple queries on it.
I hope this explains it
you need to make a model how to select a product by the questions used. this could be tags associated to the products (which you select by the questions). you might even have to do a research on the topic.
Thank for your reply but I dont quite understand you. Is there any resources u can recommend for this?
since the core problem is rather shop related, I can’t offer you much help in figuring out how. the only source I could use is google.
