PHP for Beginners by a Beginner: Simple Login, Logout, and Session Handling - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

Simple enough? I hope so, and I hope this has been of some help to anyone who is working with logins and sessions. As I mentioned earlier, this probably isnít the most secure method of working with sessions and logins to protect an area of your website, so you probably donít want to use it to protect very sensitive information. However, this is a beginning step for you to gather a little more knowledge and experience about working with sessions and user authentication.

I also hope any other beginners, like myself out there will be able to use this example, and expand on it, or that it has helped them a little more in the expansion of their knowledge and experience with PHP. Next, I hope to expand on this article myself by creating an administration area (a project Iím currently working on), and showing how to handle results of the database, limit them, perform date searches, and update and manipulate the data.
