leaks like these are why i use bathtub silicone sealer on the joints,
its cheap, easily removable in the future, and ends all leaks.
clean and dry all connections totally, let parts sit to dry or use a
hairdryer or heat gun so no moisture remains!
Then butter up the pieces and assemble, let dry a hour or so and dont
overtighten fittings which are really cheap junk quality to begin
with, and can distort if over tightened.

If I ever get rich enough to build a house, I'm gonna run the drains
through the floor, instead of the wall. In my experience, that hard-90
right inside the wall is where the hairballs and soap gunk love to hold
on for dear life. When the binary drain cleaners won't clear a slow or
clogged bathroom drain, running a 12" bottle brush into the hole on
wall, as far as it will reach around the corner, almost always clears
things right up.
the silicone caulk has never caused a problem, I just use enough to
seal small openings not big gobs.
besides if you ever have a problem its very easily removable and
doesnt weld the joints or anything like that.
A plumber did that here once after I was unable to seal a joint, I
stole his idea:)
