You dont set up Apache to work with MySQL you configure PHP to do it.

I your Apache Config somewhere you should have a line that says

PHPIniDir

Ideadlly this will be the same as your PHP Installation and you should have a file in there called PHP.INI ( If you dont then thats where your problem lies )

Create a File Caled index.php somewhere in your websapce where you can rin PHP and enter the following code.

<?php
     phpinfo();
?>

Run the script in your browser and search the page for MySQL if you have a section that says "MYSQL" then MySQL is configured and working. If its not then look at the top for where the location of your PHP.INI is to make sure it actually using one and where its location is. Edit the file and find the line that says

extension_dir = ""

Edit this to the path of your PHP folder for example

extension_dir = "c:\php\ext"

Do a search for

;extension=php_mysql.dll

and remove the Semi Colon from the start of it. Restart Apache and *hopefully* your new phpinfo scripe will have a MySQL section in it.
