Sorry for not making that clear.

I am trying to find an implementation for supporting the universal basic
client authentication functionality for anyone who intends to access my
Apache httpd server. 

I am using a third party authentication module 'mod_myauth' which will do
this task for me. Unfortunate to my specification this particular module
does not provide for SSL encryption when it validates the data (username /
password) against my database on MySQL. This module is having MySQL C APIs
usage for talking to the databse. 

My communication from my module, is database specific (my MySQL is already
SSL-enabled). So is it only up to the MySQL SSL-specific C API to provide
SSL (I tried using mysql_ssl_set() with no success) or there has more to be
done at my module's code end?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,
Naveen Rawat
