View Full Version : Reduce number of connections

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone would know a way to reduce the number of connections (to MySQL database) involved in spidering sites? Because of a limitation set on my webhosting account, I have to watch out for any excess that may result in charges. Thank you for your help!:)

Maybe using persistent connections would help some? Change the occurrences of mysql_connect to mysql_pconnect.
