Query addition

Hi,

I use the following query to count unique pageviews, grouped by date.

$sqlStr = '
SELECT
	date(viewdate) AS myDate,
	COUNT(DISTINCT userip) AS myCount
FROM
	archive_views
GROUP BY
	myDate
ORDER BY
	myDate DESC;
';

Open in new window


I need to add this part to it, but not sure how.

SUM(earnings) AS mySum WHERE approved='true' DISTINCT userip

Open in new window


The idea is to count all approved earnings from a specific date, but only from unique visitors (my affiliates only get paid per 24 hour unique visitor).

Can you just use

SELECT
      date(viewdate) AS myDate,
      COUNT(DISTINCT userip) AS myCount
FROM
      archive_views
GROUP BY
      myDate, userip
ORDER BY
      myDate DESC;
';

Update: let me test a bit and get back to you.

 - I do not need the approved='true'

Does not work.

And "SUM(earnings) AS mySum," does not count earnings per unique 24 hour IP either... I think. Hmm, hard one.

<?php
$sqlStr = '
SELECT
	date(viewdate) AS myDate,
	SUM(earnings) AS mySum,
	COUNT(DISTINCT userip) AS myCount
FROM
	archive_views
GROUP BY
	myDate, userip
ORDER BY
	myDate DESC;
';

# Query
$view_query = mysql_query($sqlStr) or die(mysql_error());
while($view_fetch = mysql_fetch_array($view_query)) {	
	?>

	<tr>
		<td>Date: <?php echo date("F jS, Y", strtotime($view_fetch['myDate'])); ?></td>
		<td>Views: <?php echo $view_fetch['myCount'] ?></td>
		<td>Amount: <?php echo "$".round($view_fetch['mySum'], 2); ?></td>
	</tr>
	
<?php
}
?>

I changed my script a bit, so I can just use this instead.

$sqlStr = '
SELECT
	date(viewdate) AS myDate,
	SUM(earnings) AS mySum,
	COUNT(DISTINCT userip) AS myCount
FROM
	archive_views
GROUP BY
	myDate
ORDER BY
	myDate DESC;
';

Going to close the question soon, unless something else comes up regarding this query.
