Drupal, move website to public_html; no index page

I'm setting up a Drupal site using a purchased theme called Reddesign from Theme Forest.
The theme directories are loaded in public_html on Web Hosting Hub., but there is no "index" in the directory. Can't seem to create one there.
I can see the site here (basic theme layout):
....but can't login as admin to customize the theme. User name for the database, Reddesign, is not accepted.
As expected, since there's no index, the desired final product: http://www.usadoityourselfautorepair.com, is a blank page.
Any help is much appreciated.

I've deleted everything for a clean restart.
I had the database in http://usa.....com instead of http://www.usa.....com.
Now I can see the site and log in.
So far so good; just afraid to use any modules due to multiple bad experiences, including eCommerce.

You seem to be missing files in your Drupal install. Try installing Drupal from scratch in the public_html directory then install the theme there.

Hello again, Arrow_1, and thanks for the reply.
Drupal has really been a quagmire for me, but I'm still trying.
I deleted the Reddesign theme and installed a fresh Drupal.
Also installed a new theme, Nexus from Drupal.org in public_html/sites/all/themes.
Still have a problem.
New theme requires a login from http://usadoityourselfautorepair.com/?q=user&destination=node.....
to get to http://usadoityourselfautorepair.com/#.
That's the "logged-in" version for making edits, but how do I get the site to appear in:
http://www.usadoityourselfautorepair.com   (?)
That's what the client needs to see for his review.
Thank you for your help.
