A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I'm working on an internal app that will eventually have a couple of thousand users connecting via a webpage or an XML-RPC webservice.
How do I manage how many connections get created and used? Write a broker process? Or use some PHP-magic?
Now I haven't done too much web development in the past, and I know this problem has been "solved" before. Any pointers to docs would be appreciated.
What database product will you be using? PHP has built-in connection pooling (a.k.a. persistent connections) for some databases. For MySQL and PostgreSQL, it's as simple as using the mysql_pconnect() function to establish a database connectinon, instead of the standard mysql_connect() function.
