No matter which list you submit to, you need to provide more details. 
Technically what you are asking is a little off-topic (more about making a 
pool work with a web server than just making the connection, right?) But 
if you bring the question to the list, someone _may_ be able to pitch in 
and help.

Now exactly WHO can help (and to what degree they can help) completely 
depends on WHICH web server you use (there are dozens, you know...), HOW 
you initialize your pool (again many methods available), HOW you take and 
return connections from your pool (ditto), and which languages are in use 
in this entire process (again dozens of options). Just telling us that you 
use a web-server did not provide nearly enough information as there are 
literally thousands of combinations of ways to do what you described.

Please tell whichever list you submit to:
        What OS you are using
        Which web server you are using
        What languages you are using

And you will need to supply some code examples, too. The list members will 
need to be able to see your code so that they can see what is "wrong" with 

Best of luck,
