What I do is create a table with 3 fields. id,filename, and hits. When I add a file I put the filename into the db and use this function. It uses the $_GET super global from the ULR and increments the hits field and redirects to download the file.

Code: Select all

if(!empty($_GET['file']) && $_GET['file'])
        $db =dbConnect();
        $query = 'update filedls set hits = hits +1 where filename = "'.$file.'"';
        mysql_query($query, $db);
