    Those steps are done using the command line. Putty should be able to do that as it's a proper SSH shell. What are the actual errors that you're getting when you're trying to run those commands? If I was to guess (and this is purely a guess) it looks like MySQL isn't set up to be run from the command line on your server. If that's the case you just need to add it into your paths.

    Also, it's going to be hard to get more detailed instructions then those. It's hard to give more detail then giving you the exact request that you need to run in each step.
