Unable to Install WordPress

I am starting from scratch, but am having problems completing WP installation. The error I get is too many redirects. When I check the error logs it is holding them forever. i.e. I have installed from two different downloads and have tried installing using cPanel. I have tried installing four or five times.

Database exists but is empty. wp-config.php is all accurate.

Error log says: [25-Oct-2016 20:38:23 EST5EDT] PHP Warning: require_once(/home/mary/public_html/wp-includes/load.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mary/public_html/wp-load.php on line 51
[25-Oct-2016 20:38:23 EST5EDT] PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/mary/public_html/wp-includes/load.php' (include_path='.:disappointed:usr/lib/php:disappointed:usr/local/lib/php:disappointed:home/mary/php') in /home/mary/public_html/wp-load.php on line 51

Would appreciate any help.
