PHP can record the date/time the page was served to a specific IP address, by storing the data in a database table.
Then there are two options to record the date/time that page was left ...
2. In each PHP page check the HTTP_REFERER header; if it's value is from your domain then use that to record the date/time of the previous page - this would only work whilst navigating within your site; once the user leaves your site then the last-visited page would never have a "left" date/time record.
Option 1 is neater but not guaranteed to work. Option 2 will almost always work except for when the user leaves your site.
I'm sure there may be other options - I'll leave that for others to propose.Ian Anderson
