web based database

I have a customer who is wanting a database to be accessible over the web on her website.  While I am decent at web sites, and familiar with databases, I haven't put the two together before.

She has someone who could build the database if necessary.  I've seen other databases that have been done for them, and they're kinda a mess.

Is it much harder to deal with a database that hasn't been designed for web access (for instance when dealing with permissions, etc.?)  Assuming, of course the database has been constructed correctly?  (I know that a poorly constructed one will cause problems).

Any suggestions?  I've got a meeting this afternoon, and need to know the pros and cons of building the database myself.

Thanks!

It sort of depends on what the master plan is for the data.  If the database is meant to be accessed from both the Web and locally, then it is trickier to set up as you do have to account for more permissions, bandwidth, etc.

If the database is only going to be used on the site, it should not be too hard to replicate an offline structure on a database server
