    A complete WordPress backup are 2 parts; WP folders(and files) AND database. See to it that the person who gave the zip to you also provided the database. Only after you have the complete backup, follow this https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress But tbh, doing this requires some experiences with database, and most likely it’s not gonna be one time and done for those never done it before.

    Is the old site also still accessible online? If the answer is yes, I think you can still make it

    In your zip, navigate to this
    <strong>/wp-content/themes/{theme-name}</strong>

    Make a copy of theme folder and zip it, then go to your new WordPress install on the new host and login and upload the theme via Appearance > Themes . Since it’s a small site with several pages, it’s better to just manually creating pages anyway. Create pages, also add images (just download from old site one by one) to match each page on the old site.

    Do the same thing for the plugin(s), if there is any that’s necessary.
    <strong>/wp-content/plugins/{plugin-name}</strong>
