Config File Setup

Welcome to Nova! Before getting started, I need some information about the database. You'll need to have the following items handy before proceeding:

  1. The database name
  2. The database username
  3. The database password
  4. The database host
  5. The table prefix you want to use

In all likelihood, these items were supplied to you by your web host. If you do not have this information, then you will need to contact them before you can continue.

If for any reason this automatic file creation doesn't work, don't worry. All this does is fill in the database information to a configuration file. You can also open nova/modules/assets/database/db.mysqli.php, copy its contents and paste them into a new file called database.php in the application/config directory if you'd rather not use this wizard.
