If you haven't created your website, then it's downright impossible to tell you how to access it. Presumably, you'd access it in the same way you write it- whether that's direct sql or hibernate or something, that's up to you. It partly depends on how familiar you are with sql and database access. If the answer is "not at all" then I suggest you start with some basic sql calls writing to and reading from a database, then go from there. Or perhaps you don't even need a database for something this simple. Again, up to you.
