    yes that's the problem, well I rechecked 100 times, added database twice, but I would require the guy to reupload the database again...
    files are already there.

    Make sure there are no spaces if you copied and pasted your DB name between the "" in the config file, the also if its a database used on another site open the DB in notepad and see if the website names are correct you may have to change them to your site. Use find and replace then re-import the DB through control panel.
