24.8.7.73 mysql_ssl_set()

my_bool mysql_ssl_set(MYSQL *mysql, const char *key, const char *cert, const char *ca, const char *capath, const char *cipher)

Description

mysql_ssl_set() is used for establishing secure connections using SSL. It must be called before mysql_real_connect().

mysql_ssl_set() does nothing unless SSL support is enabled in the client library.

mysql is the connection handler returned from mysql_init(). The other parameters are specified as follows:

  • key is the path name to the key file.

  • cert is the path name to the certificate file.

  • ca is the path name to the certificate authority file.

  • capath is the path name to a directory that contains trusted SSL CA certificates in PEM format.

  • cipher is a list of permissible ciphers to use for SSL encryption.

Any unused SSL parameters may be given as NULL.

Return Values

This function always returns 0. If SSL setup is incorrect, mysql_real_connect() returns an error when you attempt to connect.
