    Getting an SSL enabled version of MySQL installed...


    Hey all,

    I have looked around and I'm having some questions still about how to get an SSL enabled version of MySQL 4.x installed on RHEL 3.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to go about doing this? I've read that the RPM distrobution can be SSL enabled, but not how to do it. Also, I have read that the distributed binaries don't have SSL and that in order to get SSL functionality I will need to compile it from source.

    Does anyone know the real story and _how_ to go about getting this ability out of MySQL?

    p.s. sorry for the cross-post.

    Pretty sure that there exists a binary with ssl compiled out there somewhere. If not, grab the sources, read the INSTALL or README file included with it, ./configure it with the correct options to enable SSL, make, make install.

    Yeah.... that's probably what I'll end up doing. I was hoping I could use the RPM to help keep track of it and I suppose I could build my own RPM....

    Thnx for the reply.

    Has anyone else used MySQL with SSL? How did the install go?

    If there exists an rpm with SSL enabled, you'd find it at http://rpm.pbone.net
