Hi,

Is there a newer installation manual then the one which is listed as a sticky? I used it today, but I don't get it to work. I get the error.png. I did use the version with sql-database. My zip-file didn't have a phpinfo.php which is mentioned in the doc

Regards,
Rob

And you read and followed the instructions exactly?

No need for a newer tutorial as the script hasn't been updated in a while.

I think I followed the instructions, first I tried the version with a sql database and now I am trying to get it to work without the database. Both don't like me

But in the tut is phpinfo.php mentioned. I don't see it in the zipfile. Could that be the problem?

best regards,
Rob

That file is irrelevant so was probably removed. Did you chmod the files as explained in the tutorial?

Hmm notice there is no count.txt file. Renaming demo.txt to count.txt should fix that then chmod that file to 666. If that doesn't work try chmod it to 777.

Yes I changed the permissions. on the directories and on the counter.txt. But this is not needed in the version with the sql-database. I am guessing I have the html-code wrong (?) what is the way the page, which one wants to look at, is added, in the line where the counter is added to the html code?

Best regards,
Rob

I have to shoot to work now so can't go in to details but will tomorrow if you're still struggling.

Have a look at the code used in demo.php but from what I can see you just use the following HTML

<img src="counter_dir/counter.php?page=the_page&digit=the_digit_set" border="0" alt="counter">

where counter_dir is the folder you put the counter script in.

the_page --> the name of the page you want to track

the_digit_set --> the digit set from the digits directory

all that is clear, the only one which is not clear is how to put in the page I want to track.

Is dat the name of the frame where the counter-code is in?

like
http://www.my-page.com/index.html
or
index.html
or
buttons.html (that is where I have the counter in)

thanks for your support

Not 100% but I guess you just put in a unqiue name so that the database can keep track of it. Will have a look later if I remember.
