if (!$con)
  {
  die("mysqli_init failed");
  }

mysqli_ssl_set($con,"key.pem","cert.pem","cacert.pem",NULL,NULL);

if (!mysqli_real_connect($con,"localhost","my_user","my_password","my_db"))
  {
  die("Connect Error: " . mysqli_connect_error());

Definition and Usage

The mysqli_ssl_set() function is used to establish secure connections using SSL. However, this function does nothing unless OpenSSL support is enabled.

Note: This function must be called before mysqli_real_connect().

Note: MySQL Native Driver does not support SSL before PHP 5.3.3. MySQL Native Driver is enabled by default on Microsoft Windows from PHP 5.3+.
