The best way to proceed is to write a small file like so

UNTESTED CODE

$fp = fopen("/path/to/log/file.txt', 'a' );
fprintf( $fp, "%s %s\n", strip_tag( $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] ), date("Y-m-d H:i:s") );
fclose($fp);

and put that in a php file - say logger.php - and then include this wherever you need it

---- index.php starts
<?php
   include 'logger.php';

   ..... your code
?>
---- index.php ends
