Comments - Securing Connections for Client and Server

It is worth mentioning that if you create the certificates as user root the MariaDB daemon CANNOT read the SSL certificates. You have to do a chown or chmod first:

SQL> SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE '%ssl%'; +---------------------+------------------------------------------------------+





SSL error: Unable to get private key from '/home/mysql/database/mariadb-106/etc/server-key.pem' 2021-10-18 15:42:25 0 [Warning] Failed to setup SSL 2021-10-18 15:42:25 0 [Warning] SSL error: Unable to get private key

After this command:

chown mysql: /etc/my.cnf.d/certificates/server-*.pem

SSL works fine.
