I am having trouble to install, and therefore connect, a phpmyadmin in a Ubuntu 18 droplet, to my managed mysql db cluster.
Somehow during phpmyadmin installation, through instructions given in this DO tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-18-04
I cannot finish installation. Its some trouble with mysql users
I have tried everything, also using command: dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin
It always fail because some error from mysql rejecting the user and password.
I am creating two new users under DO control panel, using instructions given in: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/databases/mysql/how-to/modify-user-privileges/
Therefore I have created a new database for phpmyadmin, created one user with all privieleges and grant option (as superadmin for that database), and a second user with all privileges (as a user for that database), but always ends failing the installation.
Both users can access mysql through command line from ssh from the Ubuntu 18 droplet, which means I am missing something in the config file for phpmyadmin, but dont know what
