I think you missed something in the quick start installation. Don't you have to go into your cpanel under PHP admin and create a new database and user and establish the users permission? How else can you fill out the installation it asks for the name of the database and password and the name of the database user?

Please reply because I like to make a purchase but first I need to know how to quick install?

I don't have shell access so I would use upload from cpanel and than unzip all files?

Please let me know if this is not correct it is what i read in a joomla book.
