How do I display the data from a database on a web site so that people may come and view it, make changes, buy things etc?

Commented:
What kind of database is is?

Commented:
You could use Perl's DBI (Database Interface) and depending on
the database you use(Sybase, Oracle,...), you could install some
extra modules into perl in order to talk directly to the DB and
send the data back to the Web. It is a complex question and I can't have a precise answer to it. Check www.perl.com and the CPAN archive for the modules you need. All docs are online.

Commented:
If you're working on a win32-basis you also could use the Win32::ODBC module. More information on databases with Win32 you'll find at http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Way/6278/perl-win32-database.html
