mysql encryption tutorial?

P: n/a
The documentation for using encyption with mysql does not seem to have
any easy to follow examples. Anyone know of one? I am surprised there
does not seem much out there on this. I googled mysql encryption

I would think any database containing personal and sensitive
information would be stored encrypted, no?

Generally only passwords are stored encrypted, the reason being is that
md5 for instance is irreversible, so anything that you actually need to
access can't be decrypted, other types like mcrypt arent that strong
and add a lot of processor overhead for little security enhancements.

Try a mysql newsgroup such as comp.databases.mysql. You'll get better
answers.
