A question about Wordpress


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m a new user to the servers. I am trying to install Wordpress 3.0.1 of a different language on the server. I actually got as far as uploading all the Wordpress files to the FTP, and starting the process. However, the program then decided it wants some variables:
Name of the database
User name & password
Hostname

So… I have a few questions :

  1. How do I know what’s the name of the database to be used?

  2. Do I use the user name & password as a Dreamhost client, or the ones used to access my FTP?

  3. What’s my hostname? (or how do I find out?)

I’m sorry if these questions seem quite noobish to you, but I’m still making my very first steps in setting up my own blog from scratch here.

Thanks in advance!

You have to set up your own database:
