The suggestion regarding DB usage is to have a different DB per site. For people that follow this advice, the table prefix setting is just noise during the install process.

Probably need to still have the option around, but show it only to people that host more than one site on the DB.

In addition to the prefix, the host is also a setting which most users will have a hard time to figure out, especially since for many hosting setups, especially VPS oriented, the answer is simply localhost. Both setting should be hidden by default and displayed only when the user specifically asks for it.

For the prefix itself, the default should be some random string which will make it easier to host multiple calmPress on the same DB.

Another thing that can be improved is to remove the pre-set values in the input fields. At best they require extra work to remove them, at worst they are causing confusion.
