int DB_ENV->set_encrypt(DB_ENV *dbenv, const char *passwd, u_int32_t flags);
Set the password used by the DB_ENV and DB methods to perform encryption and decryption.
The flags value must be set to 0 or the following value:
The DB_ENV->set_encrypt method configures a database environment, not only operations performed using the specified DB_ENV handle.
The DB_ENV->set_encrypt interface may not be called after the DB_ENV->open interface is called. If the database environment already exists when DB_ENV->open is called, the information specified to DB_ENV->set_encrypt must be consistent with the existing environment or an error will be returned.
The DB_ENV->set_encrypt method returns a non-zero error value on failure and 0 on success.
The DB_ENV->set_encrypt method may fail and return a non-zero error for the following conditions:
Called after DB_ENV->open was called.
The DB_ENV->set_encrypt method may fail and return a non-zero error for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system functions. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DB_ENV->set_encrypt method may fail and return DB_RUNRECOVERY, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
