[Phpmyadmin-devel] Supporting SSL connections to MySQL

While there is a configuration directive ($cfg['Servers'][$i]['ssl']) to 
use an SSL connection for connecting to the MySQL server[1], it doesn't 
seem to work. PHP requires a number of extra variables when initiating 
an SSL connection (certificate path, key file, etc). I think I've fixed 
up the existing code, but I don't have an ssl-enabled mysql install. 
Yeah, I'll probably eventually compile my own, but right now I don't 
have time for that.

Is anyone in a position to test my branch? 
https://github.com/ibennetch/phpmyadmin.git in the ssl branch or 
https://github.com/ibennetch/phpmyadmin/zipball/ssl -- you'll want to 
refer to Documentation.html for the appropriate configuration options.


1 - not from the client to phpMyAdmin, that is ForceSSL and beyond the 
scope of what I'm talking about)
