V8.2.2: Login credentials incorrect, please try again

I recently installed 8.2.2 from scratch on a brand new LAMP server. (Digital Ocean.) After a few iterations (Don’t use the latest PHP!) I had it all ready - put in my server information and proceeded… no errors… and came upon the initial login screen -

But when I put in my admin username / pass, I get a “Login credentials incorrect, please try again”

So I tried this:

But no luck.

I just started over and tried it again with a linux friend watching over me… and it does the same thing. Is there a way to correct the password? Should I not be using v8?


So - If you leave the Database PORT blank on install - it seems to work. (so do NOT put 3306)
