I have OS X Server 10.9, and I'll be using YUI's Pure to create a lovely responsive page/website but I need a counter of the downloaded files on the page. I also want to show the states of page access.

That last example reads from a directory and outputs all your files, but you could just list your files manually and still use the file downloading PHP/SQL/htaccess.

I mean, yeah, you could code up something of your own, but isn't this kind of thing the whole point of analytics tools that parse your server log? For example, webalizer can show you this. It probably wouldn't take much to prettify it.
