    Yup. Prelims: Collate db info.
    Step 1. Fire up your ftp client and upload everything to your root directory.
    Then open install.php in your browser.

    You'll need to set up your MySQL database through the Cpanel. That will include creating the database...then creating a database user and then assigning the user to the database. Once you have the database info setup, the WP directions will be easier to follow.

    And if you are totally stumped still, send me an email and I'll install it for you.
