If theres no _config.php file thats a bit strange. What version are you downloading - via svn? or tar.gz. Your config.php should look like - at the barest. You can also chop out the $databaseConfig array is you use Environment Management - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=environment-management
um i didn't but now i did
it goes is should be at /mysite right
could it be something with my host but that would be weird becuase if have gotten it to work before
here i uploaded the tar to www.nvcheer.x10hosting.com/ss.zip
(its original i just renamed it and made into a zip accidently after re-compression)
Yeah that code is Posted is for the mysite/_config.php file you need to fill out the username, password etc to the database. Thats what the error is. Once you fill out the db hopefully you shouldnt have any more errors.
I get this EVERYTIME I try to install.
Something is happening with permissions. I am have root and I can't even install as that.
I've tried suexec on and off, and no combination of permissions seems to work. I've not had the problem with anything else... just this.
I've not had a single sucessfull install, it appears that the bit before hand doesn't indicate every requirement or something. Looks like back to ModX.

If you are using the installer then it is probably not creating the _config file correctly. You can do it manually if you need by creating a _config.php file in the mysite/ directory with the something like http://pastie.org/216156 - enter your own DB details..
