Fatal Error when typing in "mydomainname".com/wp-admin

After all of the files transferred to Filezilla, I put in mydomainname.com/wp-admin to complete installation and it showed the message below:. (Just to clarify: my actual domain name isn't 'mydomainname')

"Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/thejuned/public_html/wp-admin/wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php53/pear') in /home/thejuned/public_html/wp-admin/index.php on line 17 "

What can I do to fix this?

It looks like perhaps one or more of the files either corrupted or didn't transfer... I would just upload them again, Overwriting them - often I find this works.
