    I am totally new to this. I have wordpress uploaded but I do not know what to do next. The database connection details is what is throwing me off. I emailed my host and they gave me the information, but I do not know how to put it in. Can anyone help?

    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'database_name');    // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'database_user');     // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'database_password'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'database_connection');    //

    Put these values (except use what your host gave you) in your wp-config.php file.

    I did that, but when I open the install page in my browser, nothing comes up.

    Have you created a database in phpMyAdmin with the corresponding values, such as database_name, database_user, and database_password

    For the field,

    define('DB_HOST', 'database_connection'); //

    try using:

    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); //
