First version of LC that supports httpS?

Thanks for the heads up Mark. Appreciated.

TLS 1.3 is coming next year which will likely shake the tree again.

I've been trying it in LC 9 too and get just the same
functionality/responses/traffic as in 5.0.2 using the LC9 revsecurity.dll

HTTPS is working directly in LC9 and 5.0.2. But SQL with the correct
certificate ca, client-cert and client-key pem files still does not seem to
use SSL. But there is no real sure way of seeing if it does. I've tried a
SHOW STATUS request but it's not giving back the status response, just an
integer. It's getting super frustrating going round in circles.
