    Hello @jennifer

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    What do you mean by 'WordPress installation script'? Do you mean the installation file? You can find the installation files in WP site: http://wordpress.org/download/

    Those actually words are on this page:

    Editing Your WordPress wp-config.php File

    Now that you have set up your MySQL database and username you need to decide how you want to create your wp-config.php file for your WordPress installation.

    The wp-config.php is the file contained in the root of your WordPress file directory which contains the login information for WordPress to connect to your MySQL database(s) as well as table prefix, secret keys, WordPress language and ABSPATH.

    You can either:

    Create and edit the wp-config.php file yourself,
    Or skip this step and let WordPress try to do this itself when you run the installation script using the web interface. If you skip this step go to Installing WordPress using FTP.
