In this video, we explore how to track file downloads in Drupal 6 using the Filefield Download Tracking, CCK and Private Download modules. I'll also show you how to do this using a hybrid public / private file system.
This is a great way to allow site owners to track file downloads on a Drupal site. Typical use cases are sites heavy with documentation that take the form of PDFs, Word Docs, Tar files and other types of files. The site owner can see which users are downloading specific files and when they download them. There is also nice integration with views out of the box.
Below you can also find resources for modules used in this tutorial.
