    You are trying to install Wordpress on your local machine looking at the screenshot. Wordpress will not run on a local machine without an environment. There are several such as Desktopserver, Wampserver, Xampp etc. As a novice the free version of Desktopserver is probably the best bet, you can get it from https://serverpress.com/ Once you have developed your site locally you can then transfer it to your hosting.

    To run WordPress it is recommend that your host supports the following:
    • PHP version 7.3 or greater.
    • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
    • HTTPS support
