Hi there!
Today I'm going to show you how to make a simple hitcounter to keep track of how many hits your website gets.
It wont count unique hits, -meaning that it will add 1 hit everytime the page loads.

We will be storing the hits inside a simple .txt file so we wont be needing much code.
First of all, we ought to set up the files we need.
So create 1 .php file and 1 .txt file called "hits.txt".
Leave the php file blank but put "0" inside the .txt file and save it.    More detail...
