I have been reading WordPress stuff alll day and I am baffled. I’ve been trying to get WordPress on my web host (Whip an Orbit). I’ve been stuck solid at the WP installation part where you change the “wp-config-sample.php” database name.
Someone please tell me what is a database. The term isn’t even in the glossary.
I don’t know what to put in these things:
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wp02’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘boyjojo’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘mypasswd’); // …and password
1. What is a database?
2. What is my MySQL username? How do I find that? Is that the username I use to access my control panel at my Web Host?
3. What do I use for my password? The same passwod that I use to access my control panel at my Web Host?
I sure could use some help. Thanks.
