editing database.yml in notepad was a disaster. just couldnt get the white spaces right.
is yml such a sensitive syntax?
I finally edited it in scite and it worked.
!warn your readers!

What a brilliant tutorial. Many thanks.

    Interesting! I wonder if notepad messes with the line-end chars in a way that the yaml processor doesn't like? Anyway, problem noted... thanks!

      I don't know if scite was better or it was just a coincidence because I am reading that YAML doesn't accept tabs. and might actually only accept 2 spaces as delimiters (!!)
