On the page

the code example under "Connecting to the server using a file-based certificate"
is missing a semi colon after the pfx, so this code will crash with:

Additional information: The system cannot find the file specified.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
using (MySqlConnection connection = new MySqlConnection(
  "database=test;user=sslclient;" +
  "CertificateFile=H:\\git\\mysql-trunk\\mysql-test\\std_data\\client.pfx;" +
  "CertificatePassword=pass;" +
  "SSL Mode=Required "))
