You can set a higher max connection level with a my.cnf file. It's all
explained on the MySQL site.

Also, make sure you read the ENTIRE PAGE (with all notes) on the
mysql_connect() and mysql_pconnect() manual pages. There are really specific
configurations where using pconnect() is useful, otherwise it doesn't help
at all(and may hinder).
