Im trying to find a way to count the number of times a clink is clicked and display that number next to the link. I basically have files on an ftp and I would like the user to know how many times the file has been downloaded. I was hoping to do this in mysql as to make it easier to keep up with the files and such.

This is the first thing that came to mind. Have the link to the file point instead to a general download script with the name of the file passed in the query string. The download script can update the table and begin the download.
