    make your download link point to a php file..

    PHP Code:
    <?$count implode'' , @file('/downloads/filename.zip.counter' ) ) ;?>
    <a href="blah.com/download.php?file=filename.zip>download</a> (<?=$count;?> downloads to date)
    then in download.php ..

    PHP Code:
    //check its a file & USE ABSOLUTE PATH
    if( file_exists'/home/username/downloads/'.$_REQUEST[file] ) ){
    $count trimimplode'' file('/downloads/'.$_REQUEST[file].'.counter' ) ) );
    $fp fopen'/downloads/'.$_REQUEST[file].'.counter' 'w' ) ;
    fputs$fp , ($count+1) ) ;
    fclose$fp ) ;
    not tested but shoud be close
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
