    i have no clue on wht to do here. what is this asking and where do i get it?
    <?php
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'putyourdbnamehere'); // WHAT IS THIS?
    define('DB_USER', 'usernamehere'); // WHAT DO I PUT
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'yourpasswordhere'); // TO WHAT
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    // Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');
    require_once(ABSPATH.'wp-settings.php');
    ?>

    define('DB_NAME', 'putyourdbnamehere'); // WHAT IS THIS?

    This is where you put the database name that your mysql database is called. This may be provided by your hosting company, or you may have created your own.

    define('DB_USER', 'usernamehere'); // WHAT DO I PUT

    This is where you should put the account that you use to access your MySQL Database server, if you have one.

    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'yourpasswordhere'); // TO WHAT

    The password for the account above.

    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    This is where you put the server name that your mysql database can be found on, if it is not the same as your web host.
