If I want to connect via SSL to my MySQL-Server, mysqli_real_connect always returns this error:

Warning: mysqli::real_connect() [function.mysqli-real-connect]: (HY000/2026): SSL connection error in C:\proj\wampp\htdocs\test\db\mysql_ssl.php on line 7

I use mysqli_init(), to init the mysqli-object and then use ssl_set() to set the SSL-stuff and then real_connect().

A connect with the mysql-command-line client and the ssl-ca-option works perfect - i get a ssl encrypted connection.

Reproduce code:
Start MySQL-Server with:

mysqld-nt.exe --ssl --ssl-ca=ca.crt --ssl-cert=server.crt --ssl-key=server.pem <other params>

[The key is not secured by any password or such things]

Use the MySQL-Client from another machine to connect via ssl:

mysql.exe -u test -h server --ssl-ca=ca.crt

Check if SSL works with command line client:

mysql> SHOW STATUS LIKE 'Ssl_cipher';
| Variable_name | Value              |
| Ssl_cipher    | DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA |
1 row in set (0.02 sec)

It works. Now my PHP code:

$conn = mysqli_init();
$conn->ssl_set(NULL, NULL, "ca.crt", NULL, NULL); 
$conn->real_connect("server", "root", NULL, "iba", 3306, NULL, MYSQLI_CLIENT_SSL);

Expected result:
The real_connect()-call should connect via SSL to the MySQL-Server.

Actual result:
real_connect() doesn't connect, returns error message:

Warning: mysqli::real_connect() [function.mysqli-real-connect]: (HY000/2026): SSL connection error in C:\proj\wampp\htdocs\test\db\mysql_ssl.php on line 7

I know, HY000/2026 is a MySQL error - but the command line connect with same user and same CA-Certificate works fine. I tested it also on other machines.

The error occurs if the db-server is another machine as the webserver - and also occurs if it's the same pc. The problem also exists if i provide a client-certificate and key to the ssl_set()-function

Could you please try to use the full path instead of just giving the file name? Thanks.
I can't get that error message.
 [2008-04-22 20:01 UTC] mail at tobias-wassermann dot de

reconstructed the case again - sorry for the delay - with the following code:


ini_set("display_errors", "1");
$conn = mysqli_init();
$conn->ssl_set("C:/proj/test/test.crt", "C:/proj/test/ca.crt", "C:/proj/test/ca2.crt", NULL, NULL); 
$conn->real_connect("", "user", "pass", "db", 3306, NULL, MYSQLI_CLIENT_SSL);

echo $conn->errno;
$res = $conn->query("SELECT * FROM catalog");
echo " - COUNT: {$res->num_rows}";

The big BUT: Everytime I connect, I got a connection and the correct count of the SELECT - it works if the ssl-files exists or not exists. So it seems to be that never ever a ssl-connection will be established now - whats the problem?

I tried this with a 5.2.3 PHP on Windows and a 5.2.5 PHP on Linux - in both cases with enabled OpenSSL-support

When i connect like this:
$mysqli -> ssl_set('client-key.pem', 'client-cert.pem', 'ca-cert.pem', null, null );
$mysqli -> real_connect( 'localhost', 'ssluser', 'sslpass', 'apps', 3306, null, MYSQLI_CLIENT_SSL );


returns nothing because of:
Warning: mysqli::real_connect() [function.mysqli-real-connect]: (HY000/2026): SSL connection error in D:\web\xampp\htdocs\init\init.php  on line 70
Warning: mysqli::query() [function.mysqli-query]: invalid object or resource mysqli in D:\web\xampp\htdocs\init\init.php on line 72

But when I connect:

$mysqli -> ssl_set('client-key.pem', 'client-cert.pem', 'ca-cert.pem' );

it gives me:

Warning: mysqli::ssl_set() expects exactly 5 parameters, 3 given in D:\web\xampp\htdocs\init\init.php on line 59
Array ( [Variable_name] => have_openssl [Value] => YES )
Array ( [Variable_name] => have_ssl [Value] => YES )

Array ( [Variable_name] => ssl_cert [Value] => server-cert.pem )
Array ( [Variable_name] => ssl_cipher [Value] => )
Array ( [Variable_name] => ssl_key [Value] => server-key.pem ) 

i have xampp apache friends 1.6.4

I connect via CMD by 
mysql --ssl-ca=ca-cert.pem --ssl-cert=client-cert.pem --ssl-key=client-key.pem -ussluser -p
