Error 1819 when setting up phpmyadmin on Nginx Ubuntu 20.04
As I was following this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-with-nginx-on-an-ubuntu-18-04-server, I immediately got an error after this step in the first paragraph:
*Next, you’ll be prompted whether to use dbconfig-common for configuring the application database. Select Yes. *
This is the error:
mysql said: ERROR 1819 (HY000) at line 1: Your password does not satisfy the current policy requirements.
I find this quite odd, since I didn’t even enter a password yet. I think maybe this has something to do with me installing on Ubuntu 20.04 and not 18.04.
Any word of advice on how to proceed?
