SSL and MariaDB/MySQL

With the recent Heartbleed bug, people are clearly more interested in their MariaDB/MySQL running with SSL and if they have problems. First up, you should read the advisory notes: MariaDB, Percona Server (blog), and MySQL (blog). Next, when you install MariaDB (or a variant) you are usually dynamically linked to the OpenSSL library that the system […]
