  1. Hi phpFreaks! To improve my php skills I do some private coding for my own. I did some small php scripts in the past, however never worked with the "search/DB" topic. This is where someone may help me a bit to give me a good start for my next project: "A scrabble search engine based on a dictionary with php & mysql" I'll try to do this as most efficient (fast) as possible. Requirements: > "field to enter random 1-14 letters" to search for words in the DB > "Dictionary in Database" or in file but I dont think that may be faster... My plan: > Put every single word into a database table called "words" (EDIT: maybe I should add a second row and save the "word length" of each word as well) > split up the 1-14 letters into a letter array > build a loop which groups the 1-14 letterArray together in all possible combinations: > 1st run: two-party groups -> check with "like" if its in the database for every single entry and put the result in a resultArray (EDIT: only check the words with the "word length" = 2) > 2nd run: three-party groups -> check with "like" if its in the database for every single entry and attach the result to the resultArray (EDIT: only check the words with the "word length" = 3) .....>14th run... > output resultArray I'm not looking for code parts, I'm just looking for a good concept to start with. Does someone have any recommendations on how I could do it better than the above? In my eyes there are too many DB search requests and maybe there is a better way to do it? Cheers Mike
