I'm trying to create a page where I can log in and enter stats on one page, which can then update a different page with the same numbers in real-time. (sorry for the vagueness) But I have no idea where to start with this, mainly the updating a different page. I've thought about storing the entered data in a database on every update but that would take a lot of sending data. Any ideas where I should start looking?

You could use a .txt file or excel file if you really wanted too. Not sure about the performance gain/loss of using files over a database though. You can update the stats on one page, then on the other page pull the data every so often using AJAX (ex: every 5 minutes). In my opinion, I would use a database in this situation.
