Default How to register a variable with session


i was wondering if any one can help me? i have a logon form that asks the user for their username and password. upon clicking login a second form is displayed showing all their details from the database. how do i store their Account ID taken from the database in a session and carry it forward to third form where i insert it to a different table in the mysql db.

Thanks in advanced

this something along the line of this: this is just a sample code, so you might want to give your hands a try.

//get the $username and $password from the field. you can try doing an md5 on the pass variable if thats how you saved it;
$query = "select * from users where username = '$username' AND password = '$password'";

and then you can use this to save it in the session variable:

$query2 = mysql_query($query);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query2)){

$_SESSION['somename'] = $row['somenamefrommysql'];
$_SESSION['anothername'] = $row['someothernamefrommysql'];

that should save it in the session: make sure you start the session at the beginning the page by

hope that helps...
