    1. When I open up the package I've downloaded, they are all GoLive files. Is this correct?

    2. When I open the wp-config-sample.php in TextEdit, am I only changing the un and pw? Do I need to do anything else with this?

    3. When I access my url through my hosting company, several folders are already there. These are titled backup, cgi-bin, and htdocs. Where do I upload the files? Do I need to make a new folder?

    I'm assuming that once this is successfully upload that I'll just have a basic blog template. Is that correct?

    1. No, your machine has simply made golive the default app to open php files.
    2. You will be changing the database name, database user, and database user password,
    3. you will be uploading to public_html or httpdocs, depending on your server config.
