Session Handling Tutorial using PHP, MySQL and JQuery

Session handling is a basic requirement for any type PHP based web project. If the project requires user registration and login options, then it is necessary to implement session handling feature for the project. How to create session and handle session for a particular user by using PHP and MySQL are shown in this tutorial by using very easy steps.

The tasks of this tutorial are divided in the following parts:

1. Prepare Database
2. Prepare File Structure
3. Create Configuration Files
4. Create custom CSS file
5. Create Template Files
6. Create and Validate Registration Form
7. Create and Validate Login Form
8. Create Admin Page
9. Create Register User Page

Prepare Database

A. Create a new database named “php_session
B. Create two tables named users and session

CREATE TABLE `users` (
`id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`firstname` varchar(32) NOT NULL,
`lastname` varchar(32) NOT NULL,
`email` varchar(64) NOT NULL,
`contact_number` varchar(64) NOT NULL,
`password` varchar(512) NOT NULL,
`type` varchar(10) NOT NULL,
`status` int(4) NOT NULL,
`created` datetime NOT NULL,
`modified` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
 PRIMARY KEY (id)
);

CREATE TABLE `session` (
`email` varchar(64) NOT NULL,
`session_id` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
`login_time` time NOT NULL,
`session_expire` time NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (email)
);

C. Insert some data to users table

INSERT INTO `users` (`id`, `firstname`, `lastname`, `email`, `contact_number`, `password`, `type`, `status`, `created`, `modified`) VALUES
(1, 'Fahmida', 'Yesmin', 'fahmida@example.com', '88033333333', '96e79218965eb72c92a549dd5a330112', 'user', 1, '2019-01-01 00:00:00', '2019-06-13 18:17:47'),
(2, 'Administrator', '', 'admin@example.com', '88033333333', '96e79218965eb72c92a549dd5a330112', 'user', 1, '2019-01-01 00:00:00', '2019-06-13 18:17:47');

Create Configuration Files

core.php

<?php

// show error reporting
error_reporting(E_ALL);
// start php session
session_start();
// set your default time-zone
date_default_timezone_set('Asia/Manila');
// home page url
$home_url="http://localhost/session_handling/";
?>

database.php

<?php
$mysqli = new mysqli("localhost","root","","php_session");
if(!$mysqli) die("Unable to connect with the database");
?>
