Check out this link for an explanation of the mysql_pconnect funtion: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-pconnect.php It explains what a persistent connection is and how it "thinks". Unless you have a legitimate need for a persistent connection, try using mysql_connect(). It stays open until the script that opened it stops running or until you say mysql_close(). A connection opened with mysql_pconnect() won't be closed if you call mysql_close().

All database connections are made with mysql_pconnect(). Connections build up, however. The only person connecting to this webserver at the moment is myself. It seems that it opens connections and doesn't close them, or opens unnecessary ones. How can I fix this? Thanks for any and all help. -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
