I have an application that connects to a mysql database over the web using ODBC. It needs to have a persistent connection. I am new to MySQL. How do I tell the mysql server to keep the connection up once a connection is made? I connect just fine, but when I try to do a select, the database has already closed. I see PHP examples on the web, but I do not have the luxury of using PHP. Please tell me how to accomplish this. Thanks in advance.
