6. Upload all files from the unzipped Wordpress into your hosting account

7. Open http://www.domain.com/wp-admin/install.php in the browser

b) However if you have put Wordpress in a subdirectory, for example blog, than go to: http://domain.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

c) In phpMyAdmin, using the control panel (cPanel), change the collocation of the MySQL to utf-8_general_ci
