    At first: the apt-get install is mostly unneeded, and misses the only needed package:

    apt-get install rsyslog-mysql
    that will create database, structure and tables.

    Then, in the wizard step 7:
    • Name of the source: local syslog
    • Table type: MonitorWare
    • Database host: localhost
    • Database name: Syslog
    • Database tablename: SystemEvents
    • Database user: rsyslog
    • Database password: the one given during the installation of rsyslog-mysql, can be seen in /etc/rsyslog.d/mysql.conf
