      Hello. You must add the database details in the WordPress wp-config.php file. Please check

      These are the lines for the database connection
      /** The name of the database for WordPress */
      define( ‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’ );
      /** MySQL database username */
      define( ‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’ );
      /** MySQL database password */
      define( ‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password_here’ );
      /** MySQL hostname */
      define( ‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’ );
