mysql said: ERROR 1819 (HY000) at line 1: Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements

I Cannot set PHPMyAdmin Application password. No matter how strong, complex password I try to set, the console will always return the error 1819: I am using putty for console access using SSH key. here is a sample password: yIO8v3hVaDyIO8v3hVai$0zo*saD.

I tried combining it with long, short, alphanumerical, and others. But always getting the same error.

The PHPMyAdmin Application password screen will return an error saying password mismatch even i try to let it decide the random password(pressing enter by leaving the field empty) I am using ubuntu 20 with PHP 7.4 command used: sudo apt update && sudo apt install phpmyadmin php-mbstring.

What I could suggest in your case is rather than installing PHPmyAdmin with apt is to install it manually.

To do so you can follow the steps from this answer here:

That way you will make sure that you are using the latest PHPmyAdmin version and it will be compatible with the latest MySQL version.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
