    However, maybe someone could say where I can get info to complete lines 23 – 89.

    @yebodave Sorry for the delay!

    Those are the credentials for connecting to the MySQL database that you created through your hosting provider.

    If you don’t have a hosting provider yet, you need to get one, and we have some recommendations at https://wordpress.org/hosting/

    WordPress is software that runs on a server, not your computer, so you need a hosting provider to run that server.

    WordPress uses a MySQL database to store all of your content and settings.

    You’ll create the MySQL database with your hosting provider (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for details), thus you’ll know your database’s name, username, password, etc. Everything you need for that part of the wp-config.php file.

    Alternatively, most hosting providers, including the ones we recommend, offer a very simple WordPress installer where all you need to do is pretty much push a single button.
