To connect to a database using SSL in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the required SSL certificate on the database server.
  2. Update the database connection configuration in the .env file or config/database.php file to include the SSL options. Here's an example of how the configuration might look like:

'mysql' => [
    'driver' => 'mysql',
    'host' => env('DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1'),
    'port' => env('DB_PORT', '3306'),
    'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'forge'),
    'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', 'forge'),
    'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),
    'unix_socket' => env('DB_SOCKET', ''),
    'charset' => 'utf8mb4',
    'collation' => 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci',
    'prefix' => '',
    'strict' => false,
    'engine' => null,
    'options'   => [
        PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_KEY    => '/path_to_client_key.pem',
        PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CERT   => '/path_to_client_cert.pem',
        PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CA     => '/path_to_ca_cert.pem',
    ],
],


  1. Update the configuration with the correct paths to the SSL certificate files. Ensure that the paths are relative to the project root directory.
  2. Save the changes and test the connection to the database by running a migration or accessing database data.


By following these steps, you should be able to connect to a database using SSL in Laravel.
