I replied to your ticket.

There isn't a specific error. But this appears to be a database connection error of some kind. Basically you need to confirm the MySQL information that you are entering into the first step of the install. Your web host should be able to confirm this information.

I suppose it could also be a lack of MySQLi support in PHP. The requirements script will test for this and other XF requirements:
