Silverstripe on MY site

I'm a beginner with CMS programs, but Silverstripe is the kind of CMS I need for my site.
The problem is that, after installation (using the automatic installer), I get redirected to a site that is called "localhost".
I don't understand how to change this "localhost" to the name of my site (I use altervista).
I hope you understand what I mean. If not, just ask :)

Oh yes. I want also to change the name of my site, which now is "your site name" by default. :(

Changing the name of your site is easy: in the CMS in the left menu, go to 'settings' and change what you find there.

As for 'localhost' - are you referring to the url of your website? Because that would be an altavista thing, not a silverstripe thing... Or did I misunderstand?

I changed the site as you told me. But now I don't know how to transfer the Silverstripe frameworks files on my site.
I mean: my "emptysite" (the name of the folder) is full of Silverstripe frameworks files, but now I don't know how to move them in the database of my site.

Plus, during WebPI installation I never got this window, but only things about my account.
