File Download Counter

Hi there,

I am building a File download counter in PHP5.

It's working fine but the problem is that its not working with any Download
Managers for ex: Free Download Manager / DAP etc.
The download manager downloads the actual PHP script file.

How can I correct this?
Here is my code:

-----------------CODE BEGIN-------------------
$download_dir = "download";
$counter_dir = "counters";
$filename = $_GET['filename'];

$path = $download_dir."/".$filename ;

if (file_exists($p ath)) {
$file = fopen($counter_ dir."/".$filename.".t xt", "r+");
$count = fread($file, 100);


$file = fopen($counter_ dir."/".$filename.".t xt", "w");
fwrite($file, $count);
$size = filesize($path) ;

header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-disposition: attachment; filename=".$fil ename);
header("Content-length: ".$size);
readfile($path) ;

-----------------CODE END-------------------

Thanks alot!

I am not sure if php can achieve this, but i guess that my problem shoulb be solved with an server side language. Is there any way i can tell if a visitor of my website has finished a download?

I need to be able from server side (asp.net) to detect that the file i'm streaming down to the client is saved completely/succsessfully on the client's computer before updating some metadata on the server (file downloaded date for instance) However, All examples i have tried, and all examples I have found that other people says works - doesn't work for me :-(

Hi folks, I have a very strange problem when I try to port my client/server program to cygwin. It is a simple shell program where the server executes client's commands + it can send and receive files (something like ftp server/client). I implemented all the commands which the server executes from scratch meaning I don't use fork and exec. It was very educational but my problem is that when I try to "get <filename>" from server to the...

Note: You may skip to the end of the article if all you want is the perl code. Introduction Many websites have a form or a link you can use to download a file. You click a form button or click on a link and after a moment or two a file download dialog box pops-up in your web browser and prompts you for some instructions, such as “open” or “save“. I’m going to show you how to do that using a perl script. What You Need Any recent...
