    You don't need a special editor for php. You can write/edit php in a normal editor and preview in your web browser.

    I think you were referring to notepad, which works, along with most gui editors (like Dreamweaver).

    Unless you're planning on running the site off your local pc, there's no reason to install apache or php locally.
