do i need to install php

No, if you installed a web server (e.g. Apache) on your computer it will not include PHP. You need to install it if you need it.
There are apps such as WAMP and XAMPP that will install Apache, MySQL and PHP on your computer without any hassle.
If you are talking about buying hosting from another company then it depends on what exactly you bought (but most of them do include PHP)# December 23, 2012 at 2:08 pm
> it didn’t work
What do you mean? Can you describe what happened (vs. what you expected to happen)? “It didn’t work” is completely useless in terms of troubleshooting.
As @Zoom said, no, in most cases you’ll need to specifically install PHP. It’s not an integrated part of any webserver (though is included in many packages, like xampp).
