So confused

I’m going to launch my own web site.  I have my domain name and I have all of the pages built and set up.  There are two pages with no content as of yet:  one is a Video page on which I will have tutorials and the other is a wiki.  I have a script started for the first tutorial and I have CamStudio.  Both are fine and I understand how to run CamStudio, so no problems there.

The wiki is another story.  In order to set it up and earn as much as I could about wikis, I installed a web server, Tomcat, on my laptop.  I got that running.  I installed MySQL.  No problem.  I can’t get MediaWiki installed because I have no idea which PHP to install.  I thought I had it right using V6, because I am using Apache Tomcat, but that wasn’t happy at all.  Now I am in the weeds and the documentation is either written for people who don’t need documentation because they know what they are doing already or I don’t know how to read, which I am pretty sure isn’t the case.

UPDATE:  I reinstalled with IIS, which requires a couple of extra steps on a Windows 7 machine.  I also got MySQL Workbench up and running.  So I have everything installed, but for some reason the MediaWiki install isn’t starting like it is supposed.  I think the problem is with PHP, so I need to look at that again.
