First you have to let the SQL server know what databases and users you want to use:
1) Set password for root user after initial load
# mysqladmin -u root password 'verysecret'

2) During subsequent user updates or adding new DataBase info:
# mysql -u root -p mysql
Enter password:         (enter "verysecret" or whatever you entered in step 1)

Users:
insert into user 
(host,user,password,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv,Delete_priv,Create_priv,Drop_priv)
 
values ('localhost','us_allprivileges',password('verysecret'),'Y','Y','Y','Y','Y','Y');

insert into user (host,user,password,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv,Delete_priv) 
values 
('localhost','us_readandwrite',password('verysecret'),'Y','Y','Y','Y');

insert into user (host,user,password,Select_priv) values 
('localhost','us_readonly',password('verysecret'),'Y');

(You may want to select different database and user names)

Databases and their users:

insert into db 
(host,db,user,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv,Delete_priv,Create_priv,Drop_priv) 
values 
('localhost','db_one','us_allprivileges','Y','Y','Y','Y','Y','Y');

insert into db (host,db,user,Select_priv,Insert_priv,Update_priv,Delete_priv) values 
('localhost','db_one','us_readandwrite','Y','Y','Y','Y');

insert into db (host,db,user,Select_priv) values 
('localhost','db_one','us_readonly','Y');


3) Create new data base
# mysqladmin -u root -p create db25872a
Enter password: 

SQL server must be restarted for changes to take effect:
mysqladmin -p -u root reload

Start with a index.html page containing a "hello Leon" 
When this is working try the same in a index.php page.
This working you are ready to access your SQL server through the MySQL PHP API to 
Apache. You connect to your database using the following piece of coding:
<?
$host="localhost";
$_db = "db_one";
$user="us_readandwrite";
$password="verysecret";
mysql_connect($host, $user, $password);
mysql_select_db($_db);
?>
Now you are ready to issue your select, update, insert, etc. statements in your PHP 
code. A bit of Googling will produce several introductions to PHP/MySQL coding.
