The XX of df=XX.dat in the access counter tag is the name of the location for recording the number of counter. You can name on your preference but half-width numbers and letters should be used. Change the XX if you wish to place the access counter in more than one page or if you wish to recount starting from 1.

Basic way to place

Use a text editor*1 and write an access counter tag in the HTML file which you wish to place the counter (anywhere between <BODY> and </BODY>). Start an FTP software and upload the created HTML to the FTP server. See how the access counter works on a browser.
