Database user names

  • Why does the installer insist on a username for the database?
    I just removed the check so that I could install WP locally (where there is no username or password on the database).

    Because normally it is needed, and the majority of WP installs take place on hosted sites where you need to set up a db with mysql and name it.
    Naming it gives structure when multiple tables are stored in one db.
    I also named my db when I installed locally.
