1. Start XAMPP.
2. Go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin
3. Create a new database and give it a name.
4. Start installing Wordpress.
5. In the host field, fill in 'localhost'.
6. In the databasename field, fill in the name of the database you just created.
7. If you haven't change passwords in XAMPP or phpMyAdmin, then the user is root without a password. So in the user field, you fill in 'root' and you leave the password field empty.
