I am installing the latest version of WordPress and following the instructions on http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php where it reads at the top:
WARNING: Before editing this page
Please, do not edit this Codex Page with the settings for your own server as you are giving the world access to your website's MySQL password, and will not make your install work. Thanks.
Then it goes on to tell you that you need to enter your password in the config file. This is very confusing. Can someone please help?
