Okay 2 questions here.

First of all, how do I set a username and password for my server? I want to do this so I can connect to the server and submit some queries with PHP.

Second, how can others access web pages I put up on my server? The server is on, it works using [localhost], but when I put in my IP address it doesn't work. I'm connected to the net through a router, could this be the problem?

Look through the forum and you will find your answer.
You can use .htaccess and set username password (Read on .htaccess)
Others have to use your global IP not internal static or dynamic IP. You may be behind a firewall that stops your machine from acting like a server. When you write program have them run locally (mysql user) so nobody can cross site attack you. Do not leave open porgrams or let user put in code.
