I am installing mediawiki

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installing_MediaWiki

i download tar file and untar it.

No i am confused in the part written below in the link provided:

"If you have not already uploaded the files to your web server, do so now. Upload the files to your web server's web directory either by directly copying the unzipped folder or by using an FTP client such as FileZilla (Open Source Software, Windows) or Cyberduck (OSX). If you installed Apache, the correct directory is specified in your httpd.conf file (its typically <apache-folder>/htdocs). If you are using a Linux or Unix you can instead copy the files to any directory on your server and then make a symbolic link to that folder from your web server's web directory."

Do i need to install apache?

already in my server apache is running

do i need to install it again in another folder?

or i can use the apache that i already have?

kindly help what step needs to be followed after that ?

thanks!
