For ther servername it should work fine as localhost. However the MySQL username and password should have been passed down from your host, when you ordered your hosting account. I would recommend you to contact your host for this information.

Who is your web host?
Mine gives me 200 mysql db's. When I create them with Cpanel it gives
me all the info plus I get PhpAdmin

MySQL database name:db16XXX0753
MySQL server name: dbXXX.perfora.net   
MySQL username:dbo16XXX0753
MySQL password: hbwXXXUN

As wildteen88 suggested: "I would recommend contacting your host for this information."
