First let me give some advice…

use the search term “Server Side Scripting” Learn what is and all about it. Doesn’t matter what language as they are all using the same principles.

Next, once you have learned how server side scripting works, then look into an apache/mysql/php installer for windows. There are several out ther… WAMP, XAMP, and various others.

PHP is the scripting language.
MySQL is the database.

If you want to get down and technical:

php.exe can be used in the following way:

  • create a PHP script
  • save it as a file (preferably .php extension)
  • run the following command in the Command Prompt/DOS Prompt:
php myfile.php

That should run your script.

But like Ragster said, it’s best to get up-to-speed with serverside scripting, and then with PHP itself, first. From http://www.php.net, there’s a Windows Installer available which will guide you through installing PHP for your webserver software (be sure to have this installed first! This can be IIS for Windows, or Apache, or anything else). I’d suggest getting to know PHP before starting MySQL (but again, there’s perfectly good installers for MySQL (see http://www.mysql.com).
