Help needed for first installation re database settings


Could anyone please help? I’m installing the community cart for the first time and have never used a database and so am having problems with the cart installation wizard, in particular the information required for the following fields - not sure what I need to type into the following:

server host name

server host directory

secure server host name

secure server host directory

Any help would be gratefully appreciated as having struggled for the last 3hrs I haven’t much hair left on my head now.

Many thanks
