Step 3:
Preparing database:

Like any other installation process, now you have to create a MySQL database for installation. Make sure that you don’t use any special characters for the password since OpenCart won’t support.
• Find MySQL database connection

• Now create new database with username, password and database name and also assign a user with full privileges.

Click continue until you get the 3rd page. Once you are on page 3, you need to enter the MySQL which you have created before.

Now the process is complete, you have successfully installed the open cart. For security purpose now you have to delete install sub folder since you don’t want someone one to install on the existing one
