Getting server ready to use as a mysql server

What do I need to install?

This is the first time I will be using a server for only mysql.

The server has CentOS 5 installed.

What else do I need to install? I just installed mysql with the yum command. I need apache right?

Anything else?

What is the best way to take an existing database from another server and put it on this server? Then how do I make so that the site on web server is able to connect to the database on the mysql server?

What security measures do I need to take?

Thank you!

Why do you need Apache if your site is served from another server?

As for the rest of your questions, there is lots of Mysql documentation on the web.
