I'm sure half of you are bewildered, wondering what in the world that coding means or does. Well, for that, I'll explain it!

First, we open a php code with :

Then, to be able to access your SQL Database, you need to include that file we saved before, the 'db.php' file, so we include it in the php file with this


Next we select all information (*) from the totalhits table in the database with this SQL:

$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM totalhits");

Then, we put the information selected with the $sql variable into an array with this:

$row = mysql_fecth_array($sql);

After doing that, we assign a new variable named "newhits", which is the variable which adds a hit each time the code is triggered:

$newhits = $row['hits'] + 1;

Once we've done all of that, we UPDATE the table to the new number of hits with this:

mysql_query("UPDATE totalhits SET hits='$newhits'") or die (mysql_error());
