I have 2 Windows 2003 servers. One is running IIS with Microsoft's FastCGI extension and PHP. The other server is running MySQL 5.1. I want to setup some PHP applications on the IIS Server and have them use databases on the second sever.
- What do I need to do to encrypt the network channel/protocol between the servers at the MySQL level?
- Is this a builtin feature with the free edition of MySQL, or do I need a paid version?
- Is the configuration the same if I migrated from a Windows server running MySQL to a Linux server?
I know I can use some other type of encryption and measures at lower levels in the network stack, but wanted to know what MySQL offers.
