I have a script in a folder and want to upload it online or offline to see it how and I can't figure out LAMP MAMP or any of those

Well unless you are buying web hosting service, you'll likely have to run it on your own machine.

All you really need is to run an apache server on your local machine and then install php with it. While it's not a trivially easy task, there should be many many tutorials all over the web for how to set this up, many people do it. You should be able to get it up and running in an hour or two I would think.

Have you really tried to work it out before, or did you just give up because it looked complicated?

I could never get a preconfigured WAMP package to work properly and setting up Apache by hand is too much like hard work for simple local testing. The Microsoft Web Platform can be used to easily set up IIS+PHP on Windows with a few mouse clicks.

I have downloaded them all and they never show i have done it 3 times from 3 different sites and it never works out. Do you have a place i can get a 30-day free trail to see it.

I don't have any idea what that was supposed to mean.

Also what free trial? Apache and IIS are all free to begin with, there are no 30 day trials.

I've installed A/M/P numerous times without fail, and though frustrating, it's not rocket surgery. You might have a few hiccups along the way, they are nothing that should really pose too much of a struggle.

Have you looked into php-cli? it's the command line version of php, which will let you call scripts locally without a webserver
