Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Openacs DB connection issue
It's supposed to work, although I've had some issues with it. It's worth looking at.
If you run more than one server on your machine, schedule the keepalive scripts for each server to a different minute. Otherwise, if you restart your database, all servers want to start at the same time, which will take longer for each so your keepalive schedule (I call every 4 minutes) might be to tight for the server to come up properly.
