mysql_pconnect usage

Threaded View
Can I use mysql_pconnect on an environment like this? There is just 1
server on which both PHP and MYSQL runs. It is an intranet server. At
any point atleast 2 people will be actively using the server for their
work. If the script uses mysql_pconnect and then the normal user name
and password, will this speed up execution of scripts on the server by
any chance?

Not significantly.  And it will permanently allocate resources the  
entire time the server is running.

mysql_pconnect() could be advantageous when you're running hundreds of  
connections a second (remember - most connections last just a few  
milliseconds) and those resources can be reused immediately.  But for  
any single connection the time required to establish a connection is  
fairly short.
