I want to create a login system with "remember me" option, but am afraid to use cookies because I don't know how to handle the security for it, so I prefer to use session instead, but all session will be destroyed after 30 minutes or when user close the browser,
how can I make the session stay more than 30 minutes, lets say a day maybe .

Why are you scared of cookies? Did you watch too much Sesame Street as a kid? Perhaps we share the same affliction - cross-eyed monsters screaming 'Cooookieeees' get me every time.

Seriously though, setting cookies on an user's machine should be fine. Here's a post on extending the 30 minute time: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/520237/how-do-i-expire-a-php-session-after-30-minutes

Also note, if in the UK (or EU?), then you need to give notice of the intention and use of you storing cookies on an user's machine.
