Do you get this after running the install script and entering your database information?

Also try setting the debug mode to ON (uncomment the line "define('DEBUG', 1); // Debugging on" in includes/constants.php) if it isn't already on.

Just check Mysql is running in your server. Also try to connect to mysql server by typing mysql on the console. Last time i got the same error mesage,it was due to mysql socket error. I corrected that and it worked like a charm.
Very Happy
