I have started a webopedia wiki for web development. I will soon have some very interesting links for free tools to use for dynamic social website design and scripting. I would try Vertrigo Server which provides the latest versions of Apache, MySQL, sql, and myadmin in your computer. It provides the Zend Engine automatically Then do a search for Free Script Editor and download it. Then when you have this working you can place any html labeled files within its root folder and you will have a working server within your computer for testing and running websites.
