It's really an Oracle question, I think. The setting in php.ini for limiting MySQL is, I think, not *quite* the same as the setting in MySQL's /etc/my.conf that limits how many MySQL will accept... Not sure on that though. Still, it's probably one of Oracles two zillion environment variables. I have to assume that Oracle can do that -- for the price you paid it had better :-) Make sure you have a few spare connections that you never use. When you need to do something in a panic from the shell and all the connections are already tied up, it's not pretty... Your code-base had better be ready for the failed connections... I mean, if you didn't write good solid error-checking in all 2000 connection points, you're going to see a lot of applications dying horribly... -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm I'm looking for a PRO QUALITY two-input sound card supported by Linux (any major distro).
