I am trying to write a php script that will take as input a zip code and output the zip code with its respective city and state with the name of any companies/businesses in that zip code. Ok, I got this part working. The other part is that if the user enters a zip code that either does not exist or there is no businesses in that zip code, then the output would be a range of zip codes within, let us say, 5 miles from the zip code the user entered. I have a database with all the zip codes, latitude, longitude, city, and state columns.
Is there anyone who can help me code this in php? Thanks.
