MediaWiki for dummies

So I don't know if this has been asked already, but I am looking at creating a personal wiki to house, store, and showcase previous played characters on otherwise closed games (ex. Fallcoast/The Reach, Fate's Harvest, etc.). I'd like to use MediaWiki, but I know there are a number of things I need to do first.
Because I know very little about coding, hosting, MySQL, etc. Can someone help this newb out in steps/processes/recommendations?

MediaWiki requires a bit of tech savvy--setup, themes, maintenance. If you're looking for something that you can just kind of run with out of the box, you might consider wikidot instead. It doesn't have all the same bells and whistles, but it's free, easy to use, and serviceable.
Digital Ocean has a setup guide for MW: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-mediawiki-on-ubuntu-14-04
