Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find a free server with PHP support. However, if you're just going to use it for learning/developing, you can install the Apache (http://httpd.apache.org/) HTTP daemon. Installation instructions are on the site. After installing that, you will need to install PHP from php.net and configure Apache to use it. Again, instructions on the site. Have fun!

if you're running on a windoze platform you can try BadBlue Personal Edition from
http://www.badblue.com It's pretty lightweight and has excellent tutorials on installing, installing and using PHP and DynDNS - a reasonable testing and fileshare platform until you get around to using Apache.
