The backend will get the database user id and password from 
$HOME/.mythtv/config.xml, using the home directory of the user that runs 
mythbackend (usually mythtv). You can create the config.xml file by 
running mythtv-setup. If you have already run mythtv-setup it will have 
created the config.xml file in the $HOME/.mythtv directory of the user 
that ran mythtv-setup. You can copy that config.xml file to the 
$HOME/.mythtv directory of the mythbackend user.
