guidance and idea for Mediawiki configuration in centos 5.6

I'm planning to install media wiki in a centos(5.6)server so that the staffs could upload their technical stuffs so that it could be easier for new ones and also for future reference(documentation).

Now i have installed centos 5.6 in the server and want to install media wiki 1.19 and will be installing php53(hope that would work) and also the required MySQL.

Now i wanted to know after installing media wiki how should i go about it?how are we going access the media wiki server and upload files in it?

or do we need to host that in a web server?i don't think that's required as it itself is a web server..

So can anyone help me please?i don't find anything in the Google either.
