Re: [php-49] sql too many connections

Do you know how connections are handled while the script/s run? One thing that I've seen before is that each area of code (as in each include, procedural script, or class) will open it's own new connection to the db, instead of reusing an existing connection, which should reduce the number of open connections.

to up the # of max connections in the my.cnf (right now its at 150, I
upped it to 200). I wanted to explore the code and see if there were
some things from the php side I could do to eliminate some of the
problems. Any suggestions on things to try or look for? I can't decide
if using mysql_close explicitly on pages is a good idea or not. Any
