A database can't do anything without a connection!

Maybe I'm missing something, but without some process establishing an
initial database connection, a database will do nothing.

After all, without the engine getting a connection request, the engine
will never be opened.

Further, without an open connection, the engine will close the database

I think you are trying to hide something, but in fact it is making it
difficult to understand and solve your problem.
