Set Up Your WordPress Database
Setting Up Your MySQL Database
Before we install WordPress, we need a database.
In your XAMPP Control Panel, click the Admin button in the MySQL section.
Click on Admin in the MySQL row to launch phpMyAdmin.
A new browser window will automatically open with the phpMyAdmin interface.
Click on Databases near the top-left, and you’ll be prompted to create a new database. I’ve called mine “WP.”
When you’ve entered a name, click Create and close the window.
Unlike installing WordPress on a live web server, when you install XAMPP and WordPress, you don’t need to worry about creating a database user.
The default username “root” is what you would use. The default user usually does not have password so leave the password field blank when asked.
