Create a database for WordPress
- In order to create a database, go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin
- Then click on Databases at the top.
- And enter a name for your database and click Create. Your name can be anything – just remember it because you’ll need it for the next step.
Note:* 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.
