I new to this field. can u kindly help me to fill the databse fields in installation stage.
should i sign somewhere to get username password db name for mysql
pl help me

Database Type
//This is probably MySQL
Host Name
//This is usually localhost or a host name provided by the hosting provider.
//This can be the default MySQL username root, a username provided by your hosting provider, or one that you created in setting up your database server.
//Using a password for the MySQL account is mandatory for site security. This is the same password used to access your database. This may be predefined by your hosting provider.
Database Name
//Some hosting providers allow only a specific database name per account. If this is the case with your setup, use the table prefix option in the Advanced Settings section below to differentiate more than one Joomla! site.

Thanks in advance

What is this error msg?
Cookies do not appear to be enabled on your browser client. You will not be able to install the application with this feature disabled. Alternatively, there could also be a problem with the server's session.save_path. If this is the case, please consult your hosting provider if you don't know how to check or fix this yourself
