    I've been trying to install wordpress locally on my computer (Windows 7 64 bit) to try out a design.

    I'm using the microsoft web platform installer.
    When I install wordpress I get a requester and am asked for-

    Database administrator password

    Database password

    and I'm also asked to supply-

    Unique Keys and unique phrases

    Pardon my complete ignorance but I am stuck at that point, who knows how I am supposed to know any of this stuff. None of the tutorials or walk throughs ever cover these things.

    I need someone to explain it to me talking very slowly, these few things have stopped me from getting further and I'm close to giving up.
