I was following this tutorial: https://youtu.be/0Solyc0Jwgo and instead of having a locally hosted mysql database, I’ve used my db cluster on digital ocean (I’m new to DigitalOcean). I set everything up with the permissions on my vps, created the user on mysql, so far so good. But when I enter my database details, it tries to connect and just times out, when I refresh the page ,I am at the start again of the set up dialog of mybb. I suspect it could be because I am not using the ca-certificate digitalocean has provided, but I have no idea how to make mybb use it. I have found several sources for setting https (ssl/tls) for your vps to work with mybb, but none to use the ca-cert to connect to a mysql database. Any help would be appreciated, I’ve been stuck for days with this problem.
