I am running Laravel 5.1 and have multiple environments, some that require SSL, and some that don't. When I require SSL, my config in database.php requires the following in the mysql driver:
'options' => [ PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_KEY => env('MYSQL_SSL_KEY'), // /path/to/key.pem PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CERT => env('MYSQL_SSL_CERT'), // /path/to/cert.pem PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CA => env('MYSQL_SSL_CA'), // /path/to/ca.pem PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CIPHER => env('MYSQL_SSL_CIPHER') ]
The problem is that when I set these env() vars to null in the environments that don't use SSL (e.g local), it breaks (white screen, etc...). I have to either not set the "options" key or set to to an empty array for it to work, which removes the env() vars which then wouldn't work on the SSL environments.
Is there a way to satisfy this key that works for both SSL and non-SSL environments?
