It often found problem for newbie to test PHP codes.Here the link for server software that i.e. combination of an Apache /mySQL / PHP installer package for Windows and Linux.It automatically configure apache,php and mysql. SO, you don't need to
configure them manually.
For newbie after installation just put your stuff in /foxserv/www/
directory and test your codes.

For Opensource CMS :
foxserv is a good package to test your code, but there exists another good ones, like XAMPP or PHPDEV.
I would recommend installing it from scratch for better configuration options, but I know how hard that can be since I also preferred preconfigured packages. I personally used another package which I forgotten the name of, since I now use Ubuntu to test my stuff.
