Any php experts out there? I need help. [Understatement of the year]

So...I don't remember how I came across it, but there's this program called WordPress [a blog-type thingie] that I wanted to get up and running on my website. Two things it says are required are php and MySQL. I've been trying to do it, but I have no fucking clue how or what to do. Nor do I have the patience.

If there's any kind soul out there that could help me get this up and running, i'd be eternally grateful.

WordPress is a sort of blogging software, for web publishing. It goes on a webserver.

Do you already have a functional webserver running, like Apache or something?

The real question is where is your website? Unless you have a webserver on your own computer hooked to the internet, php and mySQL are not really the sort of things you'd be installing. If you have webhosting somewhere else, that's the sort of stuff the webhost would have already installed.
