Description Tom Lane 2010-06-01 19:41:59 UTC
Description of problem:
mysql will only read the first certificate from a server or client SSL certificate file.  This fails to support standard arrangements for using chained certificates (ie, those signed by an intermediate certificate authority rather than directly by a root authority).  It is possible to work around this by listing the intermediate authorities as fully trusted in the ssl-ca file, but that's not the recommended way to do things.  The intermediate authorities' certs ought to be appended to the certificate file, instead.
