In the User Guide:

http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-gui...mples.html

load the database class in your controller (or base controller) It only needs to be done once:

Code:
$this->load->database();

In the file application/config/database.php

Set your database configuration settings:
You will need the correct database name, username and user password
You will also need to know which database type your are using. See the settings in the UG.
