Be warned, MySQL prior to versions 5.7.3 do not require the server to use SSL [1]. In the case of PHP the client won't throw an error if the connection is downgraded to plain-text [2]

You no longer need to specify the key - ca or cert to establish a secure connection to MySQL 5.7.3 you can just set ssl
