I have a script that compress files into zip files on a LAMP server for users to download. I would like to be able to determine when a user successfully downloads the file.

Is this possible? And if so, can you provide a generic/sample script to show this?

Apache will keep a track of successful / failed downloads, all you need to do is to monitor the Apache access logs, see:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26402271.html#33445885
