to start session put session_start() at the begining of your page
then make the login script and if it was true assign a variable to session and use this variable to check if the user looged or not, example:

// check user in login database and if it was authorized
$_SESSION['user'] = $username ;
// In tha pages that you want to secure just
if ($_SESSION['user']) {
// show secure page
}else {
// redirect to login page

but this method I gave is not secure enough so make sure to get the Idea from links above

to logout
