Nginx has problems connecting to database

I am pretty new towards Bluecherry, yet, bluecherry is up, mysql is up, nginx is posting, yet has problems with posting/accesing database .
Debian 10 , latest mysql.
I have it post to localhost:7001 , it announces 'Fatal error: could not connect to the database: ’
I did safe the setup messages, and it seems majorly uneventfull


This was solved over chat (Slack). In short, Debian 10 installed mysql 8 and we were expecting mysql 5.7. We had to run an mysql alter command to resolve this

ALTER USER ‘bluecherry’@‘localhost’ IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY ‘PASSWORD’;
