How do I troubleshoot configuration settings to know what's right for me?

Hi! I created (and recreated) multiple droplets because somewhere along the line I had issues connecting to my droplet via ssh. Most recently, I followed these steps in creating a new server:
1.https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-18-04
2.https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-ubuntu-18-04#prerequisites
3.https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-18-04

I am currently stuck on the third link, I am unable to connect to mysql despite having tried all the passwords associated with this database.
My assumption is that I may not have fully understood how the mysqlsecureinstallation works from link number 2.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I hope you’ve already sorted this.

However if you’re still getting any errors, may I ask which is the exact issue so I can try to help and sort this with you?
