Moving Wordpress Site For Friend

A friend asked me to move their wordpress site from their existing host to godaddy using their back-up files.  I am not sure what to actually put on the godaddy site and where.  I am attaching a view of the files themselves.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I do some web programming and I have a couple of sites but I have never used wordpress and I have never hosted a site with godaddy.

Thanks!

At the risk of looking dim, it looks like you are telling me to install WP on the GD site and copy the wp-content files twice (1st paragraph and thir paragraph).  I want to do this correctly for these folks so clarity is important.

After looking at the backup file they sent me, there is a ton of "stuff" there but what I am hearing is that all I really need to put on the new site is the wp-content stuff?

Thanks for working with me on this folks.  I look forward to your reply.
