Connecting to MySQL with SSL certificates


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Does anyone know how to make WHMCS connect to its MySQL database using SSL when the database is on a different server from Apache? I know you can specify the DB host, username and password in configuration.php, but how to you specify the location of the three certificate/key files?


Currently the only way I can find to secure the connection is to tunnel the MySQL connection over SSH, but I'm looking to move my WHMCS database onto a cloud-hosted database, and they support SSL connections but not tunneling over SSH.
