I read similar problem on the other forum, the install tool started with 
this error although it should ask first for the DB credentials, that's 
abnormal situation in his case the helpful was just manual inserting 
this data in typo3conf/localconf.php

Open this file in editor and add/replace these variables with correct 

$typo_db_username = 'correct_db_username';
$typo_db_host = 'localhost'; // most probably localhost but change if 
required, maybe your host requires other domain?
$typo_db_password = 'correct_db_password';
$typo_db = 'existing_database_name';
