OK, are you hoping to use .php if/when your hosting account has been accepted at frihost? The option is already enabled and all you have to do is write some php code (this can be done through notepad (what I use) or any other program mentioned above).
You do not need php installed on your PC to write php scripts. php is only needed if you wish for your PC to become a server (meaning that you host your own website). To install php however, you first need a server (I recommend Apache).
Remember, if you wish to use php on your account at frihost if/when it gets accepted you do not need any special software installed. Just simply write some php code and place it in the public_html directory, as simple as that.
Are you trying to create your own php-enabled server or did you think your PC needed php installed in order to use it here at frihost (once your hosting account is dealth with)???
