Yo, BSDPunk I want to know what IP's are looking at my site.

So this is broken down simple stupid line by line item by item, if you just want the code scroll to the bottom.

Well here is a little php fu for you guys.
Ok so the first line is:
$newb = "\n";

$newb is a variable we are declaring. By = "\n" we are telling it what the variable is. \n is special and declares a new line. Sp basically \n is a line break.
The quotes are necessary for \n to work because it is a string. The semicolon is used to end the line.

$ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

This is a server variable, of the person who is visiting the site.

$handle = fopen('info.txt', 'a+');

So fwrite says to call the variable with the fopen function and then writes the IP to the text file.

fwrite($handle, $newb);

Calls the same variable with to the text file and enters a line break or the $newb variable.

fclose($handle);

So fclose closes the file.


So here is the sum of the code:

$newb = "\n";
$ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
$handle = fopen('info.txt', 'a+');
fwrite($handle, $ip);
fwrite($handle, $newb);
fclose($handle);

And remember to go ahead and create info.txt. Also I was using WAMP so I didn't deal with any chmod stuff it's not working check your permissions, I have put this on a *nix server with 777 perms, but don't do that in a production environment, it's insecure.
