I need a website that don't use Mysql(or equivalent) as a database for PHP, but instead uses Delphi (that in turn might use some db). I don't know what Delphi Technology i should use for this, websnap? Also clients writte in Delphi should be able to use the same service or severer.

I'm confused:  Do you or do you not want a database? I gather that you don't want it to be MySQL, but does that mean that SQL Server, Oracle, etc. are possibilites? Writing your own database engine is no small feat--the big guys have large development staffs (and budgets) for a reason.

I think in your situation the best solution is web service (SOAP or REST). If you use REST architecture for example, Delphi will be the REST server and the Delphi client or the website will be the REST client. These links will show you how to build REST web service:
http://www.embarcadero.com/rad-in-action/rest
and for SOAP:

Your website can be build with javascrpt framework such as "AngularJS".
