How do I set up my own local server on my laptop to test PHP website?

I was given some advice by a pro ecommerce manager who said that it would be wise to test a php/ecommerce website onto my laptop first before uploading in case there are any problems which would be a lot easier to rectify locally rather than on the web host.

Would anybody be able to tell me how i can do this?

For a windows environment you could choose a package to install Aapceh/PHP/MySQL easily. Personally I created a minimal version with only the least neccessary files and no installation neccessary.
