Connecting to DB server via SSL?

Has anyone gotten the following setup to work?

Omeka on Server1
MySQL on Server2

Omeka connects from Server1 to Database on Server2 via SSL.

Just set the good params in the db.ini and it works fine and check access rights to the sql server from an external server.

I have set all the options for the database as described on this page:

However, there are no descriptions of any SSL options on that page.

The problem I am running into:

If I require the database to use ssl (encrypt the database connection), omeka fails.
If I turn off this requirement, the site works.

Do you use a https:// url? This is probably related to the server, not to Omeka, so I don’t know.

Umm…I am not have a problem with my web connections to Omeka, I am having issues with getting omeka to connect to a mysql service on a different server using SSL.

There is no documented option to turn this on, that is what I am looking for.

Is there a more effficient way to contact the developers? I can’t imagine that I am the only one who wants/needs this feature.

As far as I can tell, the code we use from Zend Framework just doesn’t support SSL at all: it doesn’t provide any way to pass along SSL configuration to the Mysqli adapter. We can pass along “options,” but setting up an SSL connection requires different calls that the Zend Mysqli code simply doesn’t use.

Believe it or not, you’re the first person who’s asked, to my knowledge.

Ok, thanks for answering.

I hope that one day this feature manages to make its way in!
