Alright, I spent the last hour on Google and all I got was confused, so I’m turning here for help
I keep hearing conflicting opinions about when/if to use mysql_pconnect and mysql_connect. On the one hand, I hear mysql_pconnect is more efficient, on the other hand, I have been told that it is a bad idea to use it on a shared server (which I am on here), and may not save connections at all. The only thing I am certain of is that it doesn’t work when PHP runs as CGI, but apart from that, I feel pretty much clueless… how should I decide which one to use?
Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks!
