If you are hosted on an Apache server, you can install an Apache server on your own PC and do everything like you would on your hosting account, in the same way, complete with php and mysql.
 
I use XAMPP from http://www.apachefriends.org/ on one PC and a lighter portable Apache install (MoWes Portable) from http://www.chsoftware.net/en/mowes/mowesportable/mowes.htm . Either would serve you.
 
If your hosting is on IIS I don't know what you need.
