This option is available for ODBC Data Sources created on ColdFusion accounts and being enabled by default for all datasources created via HostPilotĀ® Control Panel > Web/FTP Server > Web Server > ODBC Data Sources.

Enabling the Maintain Database Connections option improves performance by caching the datasource connection.

ColdFusion keeps a connection opened after its first connect to the database and does not log out of the database after this first connection even if you stop your virtual server.

Note: you will need to disable this option temporary in order to download/upload your Access database; please see the Unlocking Access Database On ColdFusion Account Knowledge Base article for the detailed instructions.
