I install wordpress from wamp. My task is to create participants table which contain all participants in an event. I already create the event page in the website and add registration form to this page. Now, I want to store form data in a database. how to create this database and link it to the website?

Note: first when I install wamp I create test_db database. Is that database will contains all the tables in my website? if yes, how can I use the tables in some of the website pages?

If you want to integrate properly with Wordpress consider using Custom Post Types instead of creating tables in the database. In your case you could have two new post types: Events Event participants

Here you can find more information about custom post types: https://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types#Custom_Post_Types

This site is handy for generating the initial code that facilitates your new post type: https://generatewp.com/post-type/

Alternatively if you're not comfortable with coding it you could try searching for an events registration plugin.
