    Check with your host regarding the properties of your database; you may need to create one.

    Among other things, your database will hold your posts, comments, user info, etc.

    If your host supports MySQL – that’s what you need. If it doesn’t, I’m afraid you’re out of luck.



    Adding that Step 2 in Installing WordPress explains creating your database and database user.
