"... You probably know already that under mod_perl you should use the Apache::DBI module to get the connection persistence, unless you open a separate connection for each user -- in this case you should not use this module. Apache::DBI automatically loads DBI and overrides some of its methods, so you should continue coding like there is only a DBI module."
