I want to create a web map page using my own shapefiles but all the map server software that I’ve seen need to be installed directly in the server.

Is there any software that allows me to create a map server just by putting the files in some folder and "execute" them (like php or js, for example)?

You could try Openlayers after converting your shapefiles to GML, JSON, or KML. Ogr2ogr is useful for the conversion step; see OGR vector formats for format details. (source)
