Okay this is probably a common subject for questions from newbies like me but I searched the archive first and I didn't find anything about my specific question.
I have been learning PHP for a few weeks now and I have a
working download counter script already wrote. It works great the
way it is, it just doesn't work quite the way I want it to. My
script can keep track of multiple files, it adds new files on the fly
if they are not already in the counter file, it keeps track of an
unlimited (with-in reason of course) number of files all from a
single text file (could easily be configured to use a database as
well), it can display the count for any file, it has an option to
display a list of all the files it is tracking with the count for
each file, and with a little work I will be able to combine it with a
page load tracking script I made and they will be able to share the
same text file to store the counts in.
This is all great, the problem is that it loads a new page
the way I am doing it. I am using the header() function to get the
browser to download. I have seen sites with counters that download
the file and update the count without loading a new page, without
reloading the current page even. So I am wondering how are they
doing this? Or better yet how can I get my script to work like I
wish it to?
