mysql_pconnect usage

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.

Folks, I currently connect to my db with PHP code that uses non-persistent connections.

Would the unused...

Folks, We have a fairly busy web site present using PHP 5 to talk to a MySQL 5.0.45 DB on an Apache 1.3 series server. It's spread out over several physical hosts (one DB server), we use DB tracking of sessions and there is some transaction usage also. Right now we keep it simple using mysql_connect. I'd looked at mysql_pconnect a few years but got scared away by the warnings about problems. Somebody here wanted to revisit that
