I have a very simple web users database which a MySQL database called "users".  In the users database there is a table called "members" which stores usernames and passwords.  I added a new Field called "logins" so we could track the total number of logins by each user.

I need some PHP code that will increment the "logins" field each time a web user logins in.   Currently i have a checklogin.php file that registers the users session upon successful login.

Thanks

Let's assume $islogged is the boolean value for the user to check if is logged or not and $userlogin is user login stored in a session / cookie

if($islogged){
 $query = "update users set logins = logins + 1 where $login = '$userlogin'";
 $result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());;
}

once the session is active, pull the "logins" value from the database of the particular user and increment the value and update the value using the update query.
