I'm assuming you've installed mysql, which really is nothing more than uzipping it? from the command line in a dos window, get to
from there, type mysqld to start the server. then run mysql -uroot, and that'll probably get you into the server if there is no password set. read the documentation on how then to set a password for root. from there you can create you databases and tables within mysql. for php use
mysql_connect() to connect to the database, then you can issue queries with mysql_db_query(), look at www.php.net or here on devshed for some good tutorials and manuals.
