How did you install apache and mysql?
If you have installed both using your package manager it should have already setup the appropriate services. Use

chkconfig --list
to check the status of the 2 services, and

chkconfig httpd --level 2345 on
chkconfig mysqld --level 2345 on

to enable them.

If Apache and MySQL server is a rpm based installation then enabling it to start at run level 3 (which should be your default run level) though the above commands should fix the issue for you.

If they are compiled version, then you need to add a start/stop script in /etc/init.d and then create symbolic links to them in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d for the S/K scripts for each of them.
