Depends whether you want to track any additional information, like the IP of
the downloader or a timestamp; if so, you need a separate table with
per-download entries.

If all you want is a count, I would just add a field to the file table...
UPDATE TABLE files SET download_count=download_count+1 WHERE ID=$fileId.
