Is there any other ways to connect to DB cluster under Ubuntu 16.04 MySQL 5.x ?

We are just done adding DB cluster, but according to this article we can only connect to DB cluster if we use MySQL 8.x

Currently we are using MySQL 5.x under Ubuntu 16.04 and don’t want to risk our production server with update process.

We are trying to connect through ssh terminal and the connection always failed with error message : ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error: unknown error number

Is there any other ways to connect to DB cluster ?

Case Closed :) Finally i had to deploy new droplet with Ubuntu 18.04.3, PHP7.3, MySQL 8.0 and use it to connect into the DB Cluster. I’m Also installing PhpMyAdmin for easily managing the databases on the DB Cluster.



You could use a client like TablePlus that you install on your PC/Mac and connect to the cluster remotely from your local machine.

Another option would be to just create a small droplet and install MySQL 8.x client there and use the droplet as a hub to connect to your managed database cluster.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
