I believe mysql default is root with no password, so you would need to update the user pass to something a bit more secure after you have everything setup.

PHP should already be setup, you just need to start web services by going to Apple -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> and start Personal Web Sharing

PHP has to be enabled by editing the file at /etc/httpd/httpd.conf, you need to uncomment out the lines in regard to AddModule and LoadModule for php, just search PHP and you'll find it.

OS X does not come with MySQL installed, you'll have to download it.

The connect command will looks like: mysql_connect( "localhost", "username","password")

username will be root unless you want to create a new one, that is default, your password defaults to nothing so you'll probably want to change it to something.
