this expire system wont work.. whats wrong with it?

 

When you login: (login page)

<?php

session_start();
$_SESSION['start'] = time();
$_SESSION['expire'] = $_SESSION['start'] + (3600);

?>

The page you goto after you login: (logged in page)

    <?php
session_start();

    $now = time();

    if($now > $_SESSION['expire'])
    {
        session_destroy();
        echo "session expired!";
    }
    else
    { 
	echo $myusername;
	}
?>

When im at the logged in page, and i refresh it just says "session expired!"

You have some whitespace before your opening <?php tag which should have given you a warning.. this may possibly be causing $_SESSION['expire'] to be unavailable on the logged in page (depending on some other settings), so try removing it. But other than that, at face value, the script works fine by itself..
