I want to use a seemingly simple MySQL/PHP open source...thing called OpenFuego and have no idea what I'm doing. Can someone take a look at this and tell me what I need to get it up and running?

I asked a question recently about tools that mine twitter for the most popular news in a tag, say #architecture. One of the responses (thread here: http://ask.metafilter.com/249933/How-to-figure-out-which-news-story-is-trending-the-most-at-a-given-time) recommended Open Fuego, this open-source software that seems like it's exactly what I want.
The problem is that I have to do some things in MySQL and PHP to set it up. The explanation is probably very simple if you know what those things are, but for someone like me, it's just an incomprehensible foreign language.
Here are the instructions: http://niemanlab.github.io/openfuego/
And here you can see the files included in the zip file: https://github.com/niemanlab/openfuego
I downloaded the zip file and read the config-sample.php file. And then I was confused. I think I understand that I need to edit the config-sample.php file (do I then resave it as config.php?) but I don't know what to do from there. I'm used to just hitting a big install button. Could someone walk me through a translation of the instructions?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
