What is SV's Simple Counter?

It is a simple PHP counter that counts your website visitors. It has the ability to either show the count as plain text, or images; and whether or not to count only unique hits, or all hits. (IP Based)

PHP 7.0.0 is currently required due to the use of PHP 7.0.0+ features. It is a work in progress.


  1. Open 'counter.php', configure the settings near the top of the script.
  2. Create a new folder, named 'counter'.
  3. Upload 'counter.php', 'index.html', and the 'logs' directory in ASCII mode.
  4. Upload the 'images' folder in BINARY mode.
  5. CHMOD the 'counter.txt' and 'ips.txt' files to 0666 (if required). They are located in the 'logs' folder.


Simply add the following code to the page where you want the counter to be shown:

That's pretty much it, really.
