Stuffing the actual data into your database doesn't really give you much
added value to tracking who is viewing it...

Write something like this:

---------- display.php ----------------------
  $query = "update stats set count = count + 1 where filename =
  mysql_query($query) or error_log(mysql_error());

  # If it's the first time this file has ever been displayed...
  if (mysql_affected_rows() < 1){
    $query = "insert into stats(filename, count) values('$filename', 1)";
    mysql_query($query) or error_log(mysql_error());


You can then put your PDF files *outside* your web-tree so nobody can read
them, except like:
