    Session issue

    hello everyone,
    well it's my first time creating a website and especially a login system.What I haven't been yet able to understand is the exact use of session.for example I have a Landing page where the user can login.The login procedure is handled by a php script.
    Where exactly do I put the session_start command and how is the user remembered when he wants to go to his very own profile page?
    thanks in advance

    Session start goes at the very beginning of your PHP code. Not sure what you mean with your second question. How a user gets his/her own profile is dependent on how you program it. Generally this is associated with a database based on username. You are not planning to do this with just session variables and not a database are you?
