Create an SSL connection:
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+.
