Is there anyone out there who can explain to me on advanced level the cons of using a non persistent connection.
I currently use a non persistent connection on my site because i run php as a wrapper. I like the piece of mind of having apache run under my username and keep a 600 on most of my outside files.
I have heard alot about it is resource intesive to have to open up a new connection for each request. I just don't know what those resources exactly are that we are giving up.
Any guru out there wish to comment.
