Will a wordpress website backup without mysql database work?

  • I have a feeling I got some bad advice.
    I pulled down an old website to redesign it at a later date.

    Was told I only needed the html files:
    cgi bin
    wp-admin
    wp-includes
    wp-content
    the root folder files

    I went to restore it today. New host, new wordpress install and then when I uploaded these file it didnt work. I just get 500 internal server error.

    Then someone mentioned I need a mysql database for the site to work.
    Id not heard of that until now and have no idea where Id find it.

    All I really need is a screenshot of the old website.
    But Id LOVE it to be restored and working, but is this possible with the files I have?

    Thanks!
