WP-CLI takes care of the WP installation. Next, you'll be prompted for credentials and other site-related information. The credentials will be auto-generated. You could leave them as is, or change them.

Once WP is installed, you'll see this screen. On this page, you'll find a nice feature called WordPress Lockdown.

WP Lockdown is a security feature. It hardens the WP installation, thereby restricting write access to any directory that's not mentioned on this screen. This avoids exploits and hacking of files. You'll have to unlock (or disable the lockdown) before uploading files or making changes to your site.
