hi everybody

a novice type of question - having a php + mysql, can one just encrypt
(internally in mysql) tables and php will be fine?
If not, would it be easy to re-code php to work with this new,
internal encryption?

Starting with MysQL 5.7.11, there is transparent data encryption (TDE)
for InnoDB tables. If you use that, it is as the name suggest
transparent for PHP. See also:

i still don't grok a usecase for such encryption because when a webserver got compromised you have the same access as before, just solwer with more overhead in general

what is the purpose of encryption on that layer?
