Adding alternative to @nik1082 answer, you can try also XAMPP, it runs on Windows, Linux or OSX. https://www.apachefriends.org

PHP is a server-side language and therefore cannot run on a local filesystem. You must install a web server and put all your source files there for PHP to work. Here's one: http://www.wampserver.com/en/

You can execute PHP script without a web server (with some limitations), but you cannot use it for his purposes (that is coupled with a web server)
