Yes.  Use func_odbc in your PHP AGI.   In Asterisk dialplan functions are treated like dialplan variables so you can get and set them just like you would other dialplan variables.

If it takes 5 seconds to open a PDO DB connection inside PHP you have some OTHER problem.

You can't, they are completely separate processes and code.

Thanks--that's not the answer I wanted, but it sure was quick. :) Is there anything that would enable me to use a persistent connection in the agi?
