I wouldn't use mysql_pconnect for this vary reason. Read through some of the
user comments on the manual page and it's explained in detail. Try with
mysql_connect(), first.

You can raise the number of connections (default is 100) using a my.cnf file
(explained in MySQL manual), but if you're not getting the actual traffic to
produce 100 simultaneous users, then that's not the issue.
