When connecting to TiDB Cloud Serverless Tier(a MySQL compatible database), it reports an error:
Definitely, the server supports and requires SSL.
From the error message, seems appsmith is using r2dbc-mysql. Check this issue to see more detail: fail to check capability in handshake packet · Issue #244 · mirromutth/r2dbc-mysql · GitHub. Unfortunately r2dbc-mysql seems losing maintaince Is the maintenance of this project stopped？ · Issue #243 · mirromutth/r2dbc-mysql · GitHub. Maybe we could switch to r2dbc-mariadb. I make a try and the connection problem won’t happen.
