See http://w3.one.net/~jhoffman/sqltut.htm for a intro on SQL
(and databases).

Can I ask how you ran MySQL improperly? I've never had any problems
with it...

The Apache configs are fun to fiddle around with for the first 
few times, I've played with Apache since 1.2.x, so they are a bit more 
familiar now. I've also battled with some commercial servers and IIS,
give me Apache anytime!

It took my under 5 hours from scratch to get Apache + PHP + SSL + MySQL
working, I only had knowledge of Apache before that, so it really isn't
all that difficult (if you're into reading technical docs, man-pages
and code). I am a bit crazy at times...
