having trouble with a flash hit counter

hello,
i have a .swf file with 4 (red, blue, yellow, green) buttons. each time a button is clicked it sends a var to a php file which writes it to a .txt file. it works, but not the way i need it to work. it wont work with multiple clicks on a given button. if you click the red button 3 times it only registers once, you have to refresh the page and click again for it to register another click. i need it to register clicks without refreshing...is this possible?
//ACTIONSCRIPT FOR THE BUTTON
 

_global.increaseTally = Number(1);
 

_root.bt1.onPress = function(){

loadVariablesNum ("TALLY.php?count=" + _global.increaseTally , 0);

}
 

//TALLY.php

<?php

if (file_exists('total.txt')){

	$fil = fopen('total.txt', r);

	$dat = fread($fil, filesize('total.txt'));

	fclose($fil);

	$fil = fopen('total.txt', w);

	fwrite($fil, $dat+$count);

	}

	else{

	$fil = fopen('total.txt', w);

	fwrite($fil, $count);

	fclose($fil);

	}

?>

are u adding file size to the number of count ?

$dat = fread($fil, filesize('total.txt'));

fwrite($fil, $dat+$count);
$fp = fopen('data.txt', 'w');

fwrite($fp, '1');

fwrite($fp, '23');

fclose($fp);
 

if (file_exists('total.txt')){

        $fil = fopen('total.txt', 'a') or die("can't open file");

        fwrite($fil, $count);

        fclose($fil);

}

else {

        $fil = fopen('total.txt', w);
