    The easy part is uploading all of the documents you downloaded and this would mean overwriting the WordPress you already have. Don't visit it yet because it won't work. You will have to get a backup of the WordPress database from the guy you bought it from (this is the most important part). Without the database, all of your content is lost because it is inside the database you had on your hosing account.

    Once you get the database, you will have to import it to your new account and do a search and replace (if you are changing your domain name). Then you will have to edit the wp-config.php file to change to the new database information. Just visit this site for this info: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
