I don't know so much about Ampache but you have to use something like http://yourdomain.XXX:8080 or http://yourdomain.XXX:8080/Ampache for your server settings inside the app. Just the same how you connect to the interface
Subsonic App is from 2018, Ampache update is just a few days old, may be it will not work with newer versions.
I suggest using DSUB look here https://github.com/daneren2005/Subsonic/releases it is just updated. For installing the APK from Website, you have to switch your phone to developer mode.
In the past Ampache have had a couple of issues using the subsonic.api, the reason why I didn't try it. I don't know if they are fixed.

Ampache is still very behind, only returning/responding to API 1.11 (currently the official API is 1.16.1). Lots of stuff doesn't work, like playlist icons, icons returning at the requested size. Several features around music folders don't work. It is a bit frustrating.

Ampache now (as of Aug 6th) has an official JSON based API, so I may just rewrite my apps to talk that API directly in the SubFire 3.x library I'm (re)writing rather than keep hacking around the limitations of the Subsonic adapter. I'm guessing by promoting their own API changes, they haven't really done much to improve the Subsonic adapter.
