XWiki Setup Overview

If you are a first time XWiki user we recommend that you use the installer to get up to speed quickly. Once you get more familiar with XWiki you might want to set it up on your own database or in your own container, in which case you will need to download the WAR file and set it up and use the XAR file to load a default set of pages.

The standalone package provided by the installer includes a Jetty container and an HSQLDB database all set up. However, it is not supposed to be used in production, since the embedded database does not support large wikis efficiently.
