wordpress default database?

what is wordpress default database?

2 Answers

I don't believe there is a default. The default wp-config.php usually has placeholders for those values:


// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** 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' );


EDIT: I guess technically the default database is "database_name_here"

This is a question on one of the quizzes so there must be an answer? I keep getting it wrong.
