PHP : Text File Hit Counter

3 Mar

<?php

/*
Create an empty text file called counterlog.txt and
upload to the same directory as the page you want to
count hits for.

Add this line of code on your page:
<?php include “text_file_hit_counter.php”; ?>
*/

// Open the file for reading
$fp = fopen(“counterlog.txt”, “r”);

// Get the existing count
$count = fread($fp, 1024);

// Close the file
fclose($fp);

// Add 1 to the existing count
$count = $count + 1;

// Display the number of hits
// If you don’t want to display it, comment out this line
echo “<p>Page views:” . $count . “</p>”;

// Reopen the file and erase the contents
$fp = fopen(“counterlog.txt”, “w”);

// Write the new count to the file
fwrite($fp, $count);

// Close the file
fclose($fp);

?>
