"1 Preliminary Note
I'm using the web site www.example.com here with the document root /var/www/example.com/web/. I'm assuming that the web site is working, and that PHP 5.1 or newer is installed on the server. I'm also assuming that you have an empty MySQL database that you can use for the Piwik installation. I'm using the database c0piwik with the database user c0piwik and the password piwik here (ask your hoster to create an empty MySQL database for you, or create it yourself through your control panel, e.g. ISPConfig).

"2 Installing Piwik
Download Piwik to your desktop and unzip it. This will give you a folder latest/piwik/. Upload the piwik/ folder to your document root (e.g. with FTP). In my case where the document root is /var/www/example.com/web/ this will result in a folder /var/www/example.com/web/piwik/."
