    You need to edit wp-config.php

    Change only the following that is in Red:

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

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'Put Your Database User Here');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'Put Your Database Password Here');
