Secure MySQL connections
Secure MySQL connections via SSL/TLS: it is only a number of small changes in the code and a huge step in decreasing the attack surface.
I'm using a cloud based (AWS) mysql instance, with this becoming more main stream this is essential security and needs urgently addressing.
Please do this. It will be a very big security step. Thanks for your work.

It could be a great security and versatility improvement.

This could be the same SSL certificate used to protect Plesk and the Mail server, possibly a Let's Encrypt certifcate.

Especially with the shift to cloud-hosted instances of MySQL, this should be high up on the list of things to get added
