Perhaps if you're just setting up a wiki for the first time and want to see it running quickly you could try the file based db.  It's a little easier and quicker than the other methods if you just want to see your wiki up and running and try it out.   Read the notes and it will tell you what you need to know about picking where the wiki saves to, and then making sure the apache (or whatever user runs the website) has write permission to that directory.
