Configuration issue to connect to MySQL.

I am going to build a new back-end system using Strapi CRM.
I set up configuration for connecting to MySQL in .env file.
But I am getting this “Error: Server does not support secure connection”
I am new to Strapi CMS framework. I don’t know why it happens.
I’d like you all to help me fix this issue.

Hi, it seems that Strapi forces you to use a TLS database connection. Do you have an option that you could use to disable the TLS handshake?
