Post 3+ Months Ago

hello

this is my first time on this forum, but i was wondering if by chance anyone could possibly help me out.

I'm having trouble setting up a counter that will monitor the amount of time people download specific files. At this point all input would help. Actually a step by step write up would be extremly nice.

Nice step by step...

Anyways it is done with php and mysql, you just have to link to a download page, instead of the file, and the file will automatically download from that page (javascript I think?) Anyways that page has a script that gets the old count and adds one to it, basically you have a counter per hit to that page.

it can be downloaded by either javascript forwarding to loc, or by PHP actually outputting the file (it's really cool how php can do it).

If u think about it logically, its very simple. There are a few ways to do it, but its pretty much just making a counter for that page with the file on it.
