SSL and Making a Database Connection

My site uses a SSL Certificate. When I create a database connection would I need to turn on the “Verify SSL Certificate” and enter the SSL Certificate into the “SSL CA Certificate” field?

Not really.
Connection to DB is on a different port than the website.
Usually SSL is configured on port 443. And MySQL’s default port is 3306.
Unless you have an SSL certificate configured for the DB port, I don’t think you need to do anything here.

We have numerous domains where we have Let’s Encrypt SSL, but DB connection does not require it.

Thank you, Sid. That will further help me in diagnosing my connection issue to an encrypted-at-rest db.
