$_SERVER["SCRIPT_FILENAME"] /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/some_host.ro/httpdocs/phpinfo.php
$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]	/phpinfo.php 	
$_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"]	/phpinfo.php 	
$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]	/phpinfo.php 

I would suggest only echo-ing a line per file per hit and do a wc -l
when needed; or echo the SCRIPT_FILENAME in a single file and do a grep
$SCRIPT_FILENAME | wc -l when needed. Of course, you can optimise this
(e.g. monthly doing accounting and deleteing the content of the log).
This way is much faster that reading current count for the page,
incrementing and writing it back.

This is far for being the best way, esp. under load, but will do the
