cakephp is  a php framework
it is like a application that uses php and mysql
so you wont mess with the php and mysql. infact your php and mysql should be working for you to be able to use cakephp

downaload cakephp and unzip the folder and rename it to whatever you want. anything you do inside that folder is effected by cakephp and the rest will be pure php and mysql.
