You need to create a database first, then supply that database name to the installer. In addition, you will need a database user, password and maybe host name.

This information comes from the company that hosts your website. If they allow you to set up a database, somewhere on that page or near that page will show the database name, user name, password and maybe host.

You probably need to do this, but first you need to get the host name from your website host.

I am going to guess this is because you have not entered all the proper information, or you entered incorrect information. Your host may have to help you with some of these details.

No, not once you have all the correct details. If you can’t tell bbPress how to connect to your database, you’re going to be stuck right there until you get some help.
