Hello markwj, and thanks for your question.

You only need to add the MySQL hostname of localhost for that DB_HOST variable. There are 4 places in total where you will need to configure the WordPress database settings, and there is a separate DB_NAME variable that you need to set for your database name.

You can take a look at our article on configuring WordPress to see the wp-config.php settings that are needed.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!
