Hi Amir,

my first start in such situations is

-> phpDocumentor or anything like that
-> xdebug + Cachegrind

This way + a few requests and you'll get with the help of the profiling logs a
good overview about the code and where the data flows.

When you now browse the code, make sure you'll put comments everywhere you go
and setup the wiki for yourself to document any kind of workflow you find.
