It is not the apache server that accesses the mysql server, but the
scripting engine of your choice.

When connecting to the mysql server in your script, you must use three

1. Host name / ip address
2. Username 
3. Password

I am not familiar with the scripting engine of your choice, but the command
to set up a connection to a mysql server would be something like: 

 // Establish connection
 myConnection = mysql_connect (myHostName, myUserName, myPassword);

 // Select database on server using connection
 myDatabase = mysql_select_db( myDatabaseName, myConnection);

Check the documentation for the scripting engine for the right syntax and

The username is the name of a mysql user etc.

Now, consider you have created a database called 'myDatabaseName' you have
to set up the user (myUserName) to allow access to this database:

1. Enter the mysql command line client

   mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON myDatabaseName.* TO
'myUserName'@'HostNameOrIPAddressOfApacheServer' IDENTIFIED BY 'myPassword';

2. Flush the mysql server user privilege cache


Now go read the manual.
