Open config/database.php from the unzipped installer package, edit accordingly for your database settings and save the modified file.
Typically you should only have to configure the host, database, username and password values to connect to your database. Only compatibility with MySQL and MariaDB is 100% guaranteed. Other database types may or may not work as expected and will not be supported.
'mysql' => [ 'host' => 'localhost', 'database' => 'fusioninvoice', 'username' => 'root', 'password' => 'password', 'prefix' => '', 'driver' => 'mysql', 'charset' => 'utf8', 'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci', 'strict' => false, ],
