note, that there's no opencv support for php at all.

also, be aware, that unless you own the server, it will be pretty hard , to get opencv running on it.

most hosters just don't allow installing arbitrary native code.

While there is no PHP OpenCV support, you can do a trick if you have a unix machine. Simply start the C version of face detection, modify it to save the data. Run the binary from your php web application. This will only work with static images. If you need more, go with Java. (Python could also be an option, it is supported by OpenCV.)

aka, the cgi trick, yes, sure. just print data to stdout, and let the apache serve it.
