How can I upload sample data in drupal on godaddy?

I bought a template and followed the instructions.  I copied the files from the template into the root directory.  I extracted the demo files.  I installed Drupal.  I changed the private files in the media configurations.  I should be able to open the modules and add "demonstration site" to Drupal.  That is what the instructions say and the video shows it happen.  My modules tab only shows core modules.  I used sql to update the database but it did not load the content.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you go to install new theme and did upload it from your computer in compressed format instead of uploading files through FTP?
