set a limit on number of downloaded mp3?

Recommended Posts

For bandwidth reasons I want to limit people on my website to download let's say 10,000 mp3's per month since I don't want mp's transfers to consume my bandwidth. I am sure there is a way to do it, but I am quite lost. Are there any scripts which are available for the pubic that would do so? Any help will be appreciated.

Why not have a counter running, and just use a conditional statement to tell if the mp3's should be displayed or not.

$sql = "SELECT max, count FROM downloads";
$query = mysql_query($sql);
$result = mysql_fetch_row($query);
if ($result['count'] >= $result['max']){
  echo "Sorry, reached maximum number of downloads this month\n";
else {
  //echo your page contents here

This is just thrown together, but should gie you an idea.
