Persistent connections when connecting from PHP
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Jen Ferraz on 01 April 2011 11:17 AM

Some PHP applications will have a setting in their configuration to use "persistent connections".  This setting should be off for hosted accounts.  Persistent connections are often misunderstood and therefore end up being misused in ways that consume all available MySQL connections on a server, effectively preventing others from receiving service.
