can someone explain what this does in the common.php file

$db_user = ''; //database user
$db_password = ''; //database password
$db_database = ''; //database definition file
$db_server = 'localhost'; //database server -- usually localhost, but one never knows

I'm totally new to this php and mysql stuff. I was able to get this installed but then i could not log in..
thanks
Tracy

$db_user = 'fill in your dbusername'; //database user
$db_password = 'fill in your dbpassword'; //database password
$db_database = 'fill in db name '; //database definition file
$db_server = 'localhost'; //database server -- usually localhost, but one never knows

If localhost the root for the db let it stay, if change it (ask your ISP)

You or your ISP must create a db (mysql).
that db have a dbname, dbuser, dbpassword and most of the
time localhost as the root for the db.
If you dont know ask your ISP to create a db.

O-R create the tables with the install.
Before install configure the common.php file.
