that's what I see when I try to install the CMS:

Warning: $project isn't set in /.../.../.../.../..../sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 154

Fatal error: DB::connect: Not passed a valid database config in /.../.../.../.../.../sapphire/core/model/DB.php on line 53

Check your database username/password details in _config.php, are these correct? Can you use them to connect to your database?
Your web server could have a different set up... could be worth talking to you host provider if you can connect to your database ok?
