Database Connections

Hi there. I am new to Cakephp, so please go easy.

I have just inherited a Cakephp application and have some major problems.
Using Cakephp 3.9 with Oracle db.

The one big problem is that the application is extremely slow and sometimes crashes.
The DBA stated that the application has to much open db connections and insists that I must try and close them via the application. And that’s where the problems is. I have tried everything that I could research about cakephp and db connections, but o no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might share the database configuration (changing private details of course). That could help with spotting any issues.
