    I recently bought a new site from a seller who transferred the domain to my a/c and mailed me the related files for hosting.
    I need help in setting up that site. I am not sure where to transfer those files to set up the site and make it working.
    The seller is asking for extra money to transfer the contents.

    The file list is mentioned below, along with 1 sql file. Please help.

    Folders -

    cgi-bin
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    files -

    .htaccess
    fantastico_fileslist.txt
    wp-activate.php
    wp-app.php
    etc

    You would need to upload those files and folders to your web hosting account with a web hosting company. Then you would "import" the SQL database file.

    We offer quality web hosting services starting at $1.99/month and can also help with uploading the site for you.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Okay, these go into the foot folder of your domain. Use an ftp client like filezilla:

    cgi-bin
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes

    files -

    .htaccess
    fantastico_fileslist.txt
    wp-activate.php
    wp-app.php
    etc

    The SQL file is a database which you need to import from your "MY SQL DATABSES" section.

    If you need further assistance with this, feel free to PM me.

    its a wordpress blog
    you just need a hosting account to upload your files and import the sql
    you might also require the old wordpress password in order to login
    let me know if you face any problem I can help you out with that
