PHPcounter 1.3.2
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INSTALL
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installation of PHPcounter is easy. Follow these steps:

1. Untar/unzip the archive you have downloaded into your www-root (or a
   subfolder where it will function). Note that all files will extract into
   a subfolder 'phpcounter.x.x.x' (x.x.x will be the current version).

2. In MySQL create a database and a user for the PHPcounter system. By default
   we recommend you use 'phpcounter' as a database name and also as a username.
   But there is no difference at all (you may change it as you wish).

3. Edit defs.php and set the enter the correct values of your database host,
   username, password and database name. Don't forget to set the correct
   absolute URL address of your PHPcounter installation in order to be able to
   generate HTML code for the PHPcounter.

4. Import the contents of 'phpcounter.sql' into the database you have created
   in step 2.

5. Create your counter IDs in table 'phpcounters' and start using your copy of
   PHPcounter. There is a default counter ID 'phpcounter' (for a demo).
   When you access your PHPcounter web location through a web-browser you will
   see a list of all currently registered PHPcounter IDs into your database.
   You may get the specific HTML code for every single one and put it into
   your web-pages.
   Note: use a single PHPcounter ID for a site (it will track access to all
   local pages with additional details).

6. Send feedback, comments, ideas, contributions, wishlist, etc. :)
