    First double check the instructions - it appears you missed/skipped the create database/user steps.

    localhost is the server. root/root are your admin credentials to the MySQL server

    WordPress needs its very own Database/User. You will need to create a database, create a User, give the user a password, assign the user to the database, grant all privileges for the database to the user. These are phpMyAdmin tasks.
