confusing directions in tutorial

Ray, I'm doing a refresher course on creating a custom eCommerce site. Looking at the tutorials, I am not sure this instruction aligns with the image below it;
Now I'd like to draw your attention to a mistake commonly made when filling in the Server Folder and Web URL fields. Server Folder and Web URL must point to the same location. Otherwise, your product pages can't connect to your database. In other words, although you can name your site whatever you wish (I'm using ecommerce in this example), both of the fields must contain the identical site name. You should always verify a successful connection with the Test button before proceeding.
I am developing using an IP address and am not sure which items need to be the same. (see attached photos) . The issue with the image is that in Mac DW 2021, you don't see servers and site on the same dialog box.

Also... I reinstalled MySQLi plugin but it never asked for my serial number. Is that right?
