I have a situation where I can upload a picture and it will return the name of the person in the photo by matching the face with the one already in the database.

This class avoids the need to have OpenCV installed on the server.
Article about it at http://www.emanueleferonato.com/2010/07/06/php-face-detection-class/

Keep in mind that the poster does not just want to recognize there is a face in a picture.
He wants to detect if there is a face in a picture that can be the same as in other pictures of users he has in the database. So it does not seem to be that simple.

In your case I think phash is more suitable, instead of opencv, if you still want open cv implementation try this https://github.com/mgdm/OpenCV-for-PHP

If the project involves kożysta camera then you will probably still hook DirectShow SDK library and more you will have to use the mechanisms of multi-threaded and comes here with the help of Intel TBB library should provide the anticipated effect. Although I have no experience in these matters.

You can try phash algorithm. I think face recognition in an image is very difficult problem to solve. OpenCV may be better.

That can be something that you could implement, given that you know the algorithm.

No, thanks. I know only little about OpenCV and the math behind it. I think its too difficult. pHash is average to understand.

face matching!? ... you mean face recognition and identity identification based on that picture? You want a face into database, and when you upload any image with the face of that person, the class need to figure out who it is?

Maybe a wrapper class around the OpenCV library would solve both parts of the problem, i.e. indexing existing pictures and matching a new picture with others in the database.
That may be a nice suggestion for somebody to create an innovative package.
This class can do face detection but not face matching. Doesn't use OpenCV

This is interesting but I am not sure if it can solve the user problem.
I think he wants to have a way to recognize a face in picture as belonging to a certain user in his site database.
I guess it would be like Facebook looking at a picture and suggesting that a certain picture is of an user already in the social network.
I wonder if your class can be used to perform that task.
