Just create a middleman page in PHP that takes either the file name or an file ID (looks up in a DB the file name and location) adds the download info to a DB Table (Referer, File Name/Id, Time, Browser Type, IP etc.), then grabs the file from the server hard drive and feeds that to the browser. Or just does a redirect to the file, if you don't want to deal with HTTP headers. -----Original message----- From: "Tom Dell'Aringa" pixelmech at gmail.com Date: Mon, 24 Jul 2006 08:48:25 -0700 To: thelist thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Counting downloads via hyperlink > Hi folks, > > I have a link to some PDFs people can download.
