Glad you got it working!

Well there are 2 options when installing:

1) User want to try quickly or is not too technical: He uses the  
standalone installation. (the zip, installer jar or exe). There's  
nothing to do, it's all setup; No container, no db to setup.

2) User wants control on his container + DB and is technical: He  
picks the WAR AND reads the documentation.

For 1), setup takes under a minute.
For 2), I would say setup should take about 10 minutes max if you  
follow the documentation.

Still I'd like to understand why it took longer for you and how  
mediawiki's setup is simpler so that we can improve the setup.
