Cannot install vanilla on localhost

edited October 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
So i have more than 10 wordpress installations, more than 5 ipb forum installations and tons of other mysql db never had a problem with ANY application, and now i can't install vanilla...

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.

Connection details are right, database name is correct and i don't know what "banner title" is supposed to be, maybe application title? if so, filled. I'm not doing anything wrong. Can you guys help me ?

Also i don't need any .htaccess file on localhost and i have checked the option to install without it.
Tried to view the page with both localhost/~myusername/vanilla/ and 127.0.0.1/~myusername/vanilla/ same error and same if i use as db host localhost or 127.0.0.1

On mac using xampp pdo enabled etc.. etc...
