Probably the easiest for access databases would be ASP, although there are modules for just about any programming languages you wish to use.

what you need is a web server, if u r using winxp pro, u can use Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.1
(install from control panel>add/remove prog>add/remove win components, check on IIS)
and as suggested above ASP works well with ms access, u can find examples from this folder C:\Inetpub\iissamples\sdk\asp\database
good tutorial can be found from http://www.w3schools.com/asp/
after installation, test ur iis using http://localhost
where is your asp page to be stored...here>>C:\Inetpub\wwwroot
if your file name is hello.asp then url wil b http://localhost/hello.asp or http://your ip/hello.asp
