Free Statistics


Summary and Features:

This is a Free PHP script to record and view daily website page views (hits) for statistical tracking. Features a chart of daily page views totals displayed with bar graph, total for last x days, most hits in a day for last x days, average hits per day for last x days, projected hits for today, and more. Easy to install.


Note: As you can see in the saved screen image, the script settings were set to show only the last 4 days (for sake of image size). The red bar shows the projected hits for today.

System Requirements:

PHP and MySQL database.

Installation and Configuration:

  • Edit the default values in config.php for MySQL; changing other variables is optional. Do not edit other files.

  • Copy the files to the same directory on your server.

  • Install MySQL table. Execute the following in PhpMyAdmin or other MySQL interface:

    CREATE TABLE stats_day (
       date date DEFAULT '0000-00-00' NOT NULL,
       hits mediumint(8) unsigned DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
       PRIMARY KEY (date)

For php files, you can add this code to each page to record page views to it (be sure to add the path if needed):
<?php include "fstats.php" ?>

If the page is in a different folder than the stats script, you can add the path such as:
<?php include "../stats/fstats.php" ?>

You can record stats for non-php pages (and php pages also) by adding this code in the body of the html (remember to add the correct path to the script; you can use a full url here; Note, this only records hits for browsers with images-loading enabled):
<img width=1 height=1 border=0 alt="" src="../stats/fstats.php">
