I am using mysql, I just download the code from https://www.mediawiki.org/ and I get "Invalid database type")

Still too little information, what’s the mediawiki version, what’s the MySQL version, php version and the proper exact page that you are talking about because the mediawiki.org main page is not where you downloaded code from. If you don’t know how to fetch that information you should get someone to help you with the install.

You might consider checking that you’re using a compatible MySQL version:

Compatibility#Database
