Connecting

MySQL

PHP

To connect to MySQL from PHP, you need to specify the SSL Cipher of 'DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:AES128-SHA'. For PHP PDO:

 $pdo = new PDO('mysql:host=coffee.csclub.uwaterloo.ca;dbname=DBNAME', 'USERNAME', 'PASSWORD', [
   PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CIPHER => 'DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:AES128-SHA'         
 ]);                                                                      
 $pdo->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
