mysql_connect()provides only for the databasenewconnection
while using mysql_pconnect , the function would first try to
find a (persistent) link that's already open with the same
host, username and password. If one is found, an identifier
for it will be returned instead of opening a new connection...
the connection to the SQL server will not be closed when the
execution of the script ends. Instead, the link will remain
open for future use. Source: CoolInterview.com

* mysql_pconnect() will try to find a connection that's already open, with the same host, username and password. If one is found, this will be returned instead of opening a new connection
* The connection will not be closed when the execution of the script ends (mysql_close() will not close connection opened by mysql_pconnect()). It will stay open for future use

mysql_pconnect ? Open a persistent connection to a MySQL server

mysql_pconnect() acts very much like mysql_connect() with two major differences.

First, when connecting, the function would first try to find a (persistent) link that's already open with the same host, username and password. If one is found, an identifier for it will be returned instead of opening a new connection.

Second, the connection to the SQL server will not be closed when the execution of the script ends. Instead, the link will remain open for future use (mysql_close() will not close links established by mysql_pconnect()).

This type of link is therefore called 'persistent'.

mysql_connect ? Open a connection to a MySQL Server

Opens or reuses a connection to a MySQL server. Source: CoolInterview.com

mysql_connection must be closed, we can't use this to connect another database means it is suitable for only one database accessing..
mysql_pconnect means opens a persistent connection, with this we use same host name, username, and password. we can access different databases at a time in the same program. we can't close the connection. Source: CoolInterview.com
