You would be required to populate the empty boxes. For In Directory type the name of a new directory you would like created. The box would be left blank to install the software into your main directory by default. Once you are done, click Install.
Step 6: Add a name and description for your website, type in your desired administrator username, password, and email address. If you wish to have a secure key (password), you must click the key logo and get a randomly generated password. Then click Install.
Step 7: You will now see a confirmation page of your installation
Step 8: You may access the link to go to your WordPress admin-page or type “yourwebsite.com/wp-admin” in the browser. You must now use the login name (username) and password that you had set during the installation.

This concludes the installation.
