Okay Gents and Ladies,

I am looking for more information on how best to do this.

I have a MyQSL back end.
It houses a users user_name and password.

I have a secure area of the site that I only want members to view.

The way I have it now is that the user logs in.
If user_name and password match cookies are set.

Each page in the secure are checks for a variable in the cookie. If set the 
user can view the page, if not set the page redirects back to the login page.

Now first question is - how secure is this?

Second question - what is a better more secure way to handle this. Then 
most importantly where do I get information on how to go about doing that?
I know nothing about sessions and would need some good links for that arena.

Also I do not know much of anything about Object Oriented Programming.

Thanks for the feedback.
