I know how to create on web hosts but don't know how to create a database on my own PC. I'am using XAMPP lite so have php,mysql,apache server and phpmyadmin all installed already. So how will i exactly create a database for one of the pre-made scripts i'am trying to run on my PC.

You need to find where it is installed and load it in a browser. It will be in your web server directory somewhere, which will be an Apache directory. I think Apache installs to Program Files, and I believe there is an htdocs folder under the Apache install folder that contains all of your web files. The phpMyAdmin folder will be inside the htdocs folder somewhere. Look inside the folder and check the names, and open it in a browser. If you have a folder inside htdocs called pma, then the address will be http://localhost/pma/. Inside the phpMyAdmin folder there may be a file called install.php or setup.php, so you might have to load one of them. Such as http://localhost/pma/install.php.
