Have a look at mSQL and WDB.  Recent versions of WDB have support for 
mSQL.  I've never used WDB but have been told that it's a great Web/SQL 
gateway tool.  Either that or you can get any of the script API modules 
for mSQL access (available for Perl, Tcl/Tk, Python, ESL and soon REXX) 
and write your own CGI's in the language of your choice.

mSQL is available from ftp://Bond.edu.au/pub/Minerva/msql.  The script 
language interfaces are in /pub/Minerva/msql/Contrib.  You'll have to ask 
archie about WDB.
