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:

and for SOAP:

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