I have a general question concerning databases in php. More specifically,
what is the general consensus on maintaining a connection. Some of this is
more than likely my ignorance.
My connection stuff goes something like this ...
$db = mysql_connect("localhost", "stuff", "pw") or die("Could Not Connect");
mysql_select_db("stuff",$db) or die("Could Not Select Database");
<<< Other Code Here >>>
It seems very inefficient to open and close a database with each different
page or call to that database. My question is ... Is there a better way
and, if so, what is it? I guess I do not quite understand just how long a
connection is maintained. I hate to write code that doesn't clean up after
itself. Any suggestions are appreciate. TIA
