A more efficient LAMP

Many web-based applications generate dynamic content in whole or in part from a backend server. Where the backend is designed as connection-oriented, there is a mismatch with the request-oriented HTTP protocol. This can easily lead to inefficiency in applications. The most common case is that of an SQL backend, where there is always an overhead to creating a connection and logging in. This is exemplified by the environment commonly known as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, [Perl|PHP|Python]). When the connection is TCP/IP over a network, that is an additional overhead.
