I'm running a simple perl script that connects remotely to a mysqld. Everything works fine in the case where I don't use an account that requires SSL (in this case

However, when I use an account that does REQUIRE SSL, I am denied access: "failed: Access denied for user 'test'@''" is the message I get from Perl DBI.

I have the following in the test script:
$dsn = 'DBI:mysql:database=test;;port=3306;

I put the server certificate files in a directory "certs" above the mysql directory that contains the databases. I also added --ssl --ssl-ca=/var/db/certs/b2bca-cert.pem --ssl-cert=/var/db
/certs/server-cert.pem --ssl-key=/var/db/certs/server-key.pem

to the command liine arguments of the startup script.

At this point the only thing i can think of is that somehow the certificates aren't being loaded -- unfortuantely i get no message if I try to force an error by changing the command line arguments so I have no idea what's going right or wrong.

Any suggestions?
