i am installing a php running board where is my mysql database

What i think the problem is, that i cant figure out SQL Database Name where is this and how do i find it then what do i enter ?

SQL Host = localhost
(localhost is usually sufficient)
*******SQL Database Name = ?!?!?!?!?!?!********
****SQL Username =?!?!?!?!?******
****SQL Password =?!?!?!??!?******
SQL Table Prefix(You can leave this blank)

You need to create it. Check the INSTALL or README file. If you are using phpbb, then there is an sql script that will help create the necessary tables. After you have setup your database, go back and configure your php config file. If this is confusing to you, post what board you are trying to run and I'll try to help you further.
