I'm setting up Wordpress manually and I believe the host is wrong. By default, wordpress uses localhost. What should I put in here?

Thank you for your question BrettBash!

All database connection scripts on your server that connect to your servers database use localhost for the hostname. If you are having errors setting up the WordPress, you may have the wrong username, password or the user may not be added with permissions. Please see the following link on how to configure WordPress manually for more information on installing WordPress manually.
