is it possible to use PHP to connect to an existing access database?
More to the point, is it feasable? Or would you recommend transferring it to a MySQL database

Lets assume it can be left as is....is there some kind of special way to create a web-based front end and have it talk to an Access database?

Cheers all,

Access is not however, a serious database. If you're going to be doing anything more than storing a few people's addresses and phone numbers, I would suggest you move to MySQL - or something else that was designed to handle the load.
