first you need database - name / username / password for that. If that ready than.

1) In downloaded wordpress folder you get "wp-config-sample.php" just rename that "wp-config.php".
2) open wp-config.php and just change the following details with your database like "DB_NAME", "DB_USER", "DB_PASSWORD".

// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define( 'DB_NAME', 'database_name_here' );

/** MySQL database username */
define( 'DB_USER', 'username_here' );

/** MySQL database password */
define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here' );

/** MySQL hostname */
define( 'DB_HOST', 'localhost' );

Open in new window


After all these details wordpress admin panel will open where you can add your details. Thats it!

thanks
