    So, I love websites, but don't like databases :) (not real keen in understanding how to use them) Was told that wordpress is very easy to use. However, I have no database set up (do I need to download MySQL Community Server or can i use Access) and second I am in my config.php file and ...
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'username'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    // 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-includes/languages.
    // For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

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

    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');

    Can someone help me edit this crazy thing? Where do I upload my database to (FTP://domain.com and do what? HAHA I love being a NOOB. I am trying to learn but am really frusterated....

    No you don't upload a MySQL database.

    Please review Installing WordPress and in particular, Creating a database and user.

    Once the database and user is created, Editing wp-config.php explains putting the database information into that file.

    If you can't create the database, maybe your host can help.
