    Hi all
    I’m failing to get a SSL connection with SQLYog to our AWS RDS MariaDB server.
    In SQLYog I try to use SSL with the ca-certificate downloaded from AWS: “rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem”.
    SQLYog’s response is “You are trying to connect through SSL to a server which is not configured for SSL.”

    However, I have no problem to get a SLL connection with mysql.exe. There I use this command line:
    C:\afolder>mysql --host="serverurl" --user=user --password=secretsecret --ssl --ssl-ca=c:\certs\rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem

    and the response to the command ‘status’ is:

    MariaDB [(none)]> status;
    mysql Ver 15.1 Distrib 5.5.45-MariaDB, for Win64 (AMD64)

    Connection id:          203123
    Current database:
    Current user:           user@an.ip.num.ber
    SSL:                    Cipher in use is AES256-SHA
    Using delimiter:        ;
    Server:                 MariaDB
    Server version:         10.0.24-MariaDB MariaDB Server
    Protocol version:       10
    Connection:             serverurl via TCP/IP

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks in advance

    We have replied to the ticket that you created.

    The solution was,

    Please note, The AWS documentation here >> https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/CHAP_MariaDB.html#MariaDB.Concepts.SSLSupport mentions ” MariaDB 10.2 now uses OpenSSL for secure connections.”
