Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the database and the initial site, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…So now, you're ready to create the database for WordPress.…Creating a database is a snap with phpMyAdmin.…A component of most bundled development systems like MAMP and WampServer.…But I'm using MAMP.…And I have it up and running here, as you can see by the dialogue.…I've also already started by Apache server and my SQL servers.…Now one thing I do want to point out about my particular installation.…I've switched to the default ports or APACHE and MySQL, which…you can do by clicking on Preferences and then going to Ports.…
Your other development systems will have other approaches,…but they'll be able to do the same thing.…This will allow me to just type in local host,…without adding a port number, because I'm using the default ports.…Okay, now we're ready to go into phpMyAdmin, and…I'll do that by clicking Open Start Page, and…once I have that up, clicking on the phpMyAdmin tab.…If you're using WAMP server on Windows, left-click on the WAMP…server icon and then choose phpMyAdmin to get to this same page.…
Now we need to create that same database.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
