Unknown MySQL server host

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.2
i can't install vanilla 2 in my own hosting, i have the following error:

You are missing Vanilla's .htaccess file. Sometimes this file isn't copied if you are using ftp to upload your files because this file is hidden. Make sure you've copied the .htaccess file before continuing.
Are you sure you've entered the correct database host name? Maybe you mistyped it? The database reported:
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2005] Unknown MySQL server host '~~Invalid~~' (1)
You must specify the name of the database in which you want to set up Vanilla.
Banner Title is required.

I copy the .htaccess file but, simple don't work, i get the same message every time

thank's for the support
