I set up two MySQL servers where one is replicating from the other. They both work perfectly, but once I turn on SSL I get the following error:

ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error

I get the same error running from command line like so:

mysql --ssl=1 --ssl-ca=/etc/mysql/certificates/ca-cert.pem --ssl-cert=/etc/mysql/certificates/client-cert.pem --ssl-key=/etc/mysql/certificates/client-key.pem --user=slave --password=slavepassword --host=master.url.com

Both MySQL servers are running on version 5.0.77. There is a difference that MySQL in the master server was compiled under x86_64 while in the slave server under i686. Also both machines are running CentOS 5.

Plus I generated certificates as per this page.

Any idea for finding a solution?

Regenerate your certificates, using different common names for the master and slave
