    - did you create a new, empty database in phpMyAdmin and name it wordpress? If not, you will have to. Or name it what you want (no spaces) and then use that as the DB_NAME/

    - the default database user and password for XAMPP are:

    User: root

    Password: empty, blank, nothing ... do not enter any value for it

    Note that these values are for the database and you do not have any choice here (using the default values).

    Hi Below steps are for set up the wordpress.

    Step-1 : Download latest version of wordpress from wordpress.org

    Step-2 : put worpdress folder in xampp/htdocs if you are using wamp then put wordpress folder wamp/www directory

    step 3: create database in phpmyadmin and then create database user for that database and then assign password to database if you want.

    step 4 : now open browser then write : http://localhost/yourwordpress folder name/ then run configuration

    step 4: then provide database name you created in database field, then username : username you created for database
    password : blank if you havent set any else enter you set for that database
    host : localhost
    database prefix: by default it will be wp_ you can assign your custom prefix

    now run the installation

    Then you will have a profile page. in that you need to provide sitename, your email address ,site username and password etc.

    there you go .

    now you can login to your set up site.

    Thanks.
