    since you're running the web server on the same machine as the mysql database, the server name should be localhost.
    as for the database name, you should create one first. are you by any chance installing xampp? it comes with phpmyadmin, which is a webbased tool for maintaining a mysql installation. you can use that to create the database, and set the permissions.
