Remote Database SSL Connection

cerriex shared this idea 6 years ago
Under Consideration

Hi,

As requested via support #LVR-135104

There is no way to have WHMCS connect securely to a remote/central database via SSL.

Would be nice to have the option to upload the ca, cert, key, then have WHMCS PHP connect via SSL to the SSL enabled remote/central MySQL database.

Thanks.

With everything growing and moving to the cloud, plus with the pci compliance requirements, supporting an SSL connection to a remote MySQL db really needs to be a HIGH priority.

I agree, I don't think it takes all that much to be able to specify SSL certs for MySQL connection. I think it's a good to have security feature. For some use cases it would make it easier to just be able to SSL directly to MySQL vs dealing with more moving parts like SSH port forwards, VPN networks, stunnel etc... if say WHMCS is connected to database cluster that not all members are on same private vlan and want to send queries to all directly, hosting in the cloud could be a another good use case to have SSL on MySQL connection too.
