below is an osDate requirements:
Requirements
·      PHP 4.3.0 or higher
·      PHP safe mode must be turned off
·      MySQL 4.0 or higher
·      Ability to change the permissions of files and folders
·      PHP GD or GD2
·      Flash 7 Player or higher

So easiest way to get it work to install WAMP or LAMP (Windows/Linux Apache MySQL PHP) stack on your computer.
what is your operating system?
If it is a windows then just download and install WAMP from here http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php then install osDate

Please make sure while you are accessing the database from same machin, because you mentioned Data base Host = localhost. If you want access the data base from another system then please mention localhost type - any during database creation process.
