    How are you hosting this site?

    Thank You Steve,

    I am installing wordpress in local, on my macbook Air and I have already installed PHP, and Mysql both tested OK

    I hope you used user name and password of your database. If username is not there you can user ‘root’ and password blank.

    you can use host or localhost. try anyone.
