    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', '??');

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', '??');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '??');

    Try as below:

    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define( 'DB_NAME', 'your_database_name_here' );
    
    /** MySQL database username */
    define( 'DB_USER', 'your_DB_username_here' );
    
    /** MySQL database password */
    define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'Your_DB_password_here' );
    
    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
    
    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    
    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define( 'DB_COLLATE', 'utf8_general_ci' );

    Localhost can be different for some hosts. Find out from your host. Also review: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

    If you are installing WP on a local computer, you have to first set up a server environment see:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Installing_WordPress_on_your_own_Computer

    The site won't be visible or accessible on the internet. If you want to do that, you have to set up hosting and install WP on a live server.

    Here's a fairly comprehensive guide with screenshots if you're installing WordPress via FTP to your server and setting up the databases in your control panel.
