in short: it's not really possible to know, because web pages are stateless. you cannot really know when a user stops looking at the page, closes the browser, turns off the pc etc ...you might check this out, though:http://snipplr.com/view/24198/how-many-users-are-connected-to-a-site/

angelIII has it correct that it is difficult to get an exact number, and a better description of the number is actually that "X people have loaded a page from the site in the last Y seconds." angelIII's example uses a file to track this, but it can be done with a database, using php's session storage files, or even apache's log files.
