Let me know what exactly you would like to do?
If you want to keep your users (peer and friends) in databese you must setup your MySQL, and:
sipusers => mysql,asterisk,sip_buddies
sippeers => mysql,asterisk,sip_buddies

dbhost = XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
dbname = [name of data base]
dbuser = [name of user]
dbpass = [password]
dbport = 3306
