I rented server space with an apache webwserver and PHP3 and MySQL. I found several tutorials how to use MySQL with PHP3 but I can't create a database. The authors say that I should use a commandline or DOS if I work on windows but I don't have the server on my own PC. Can somebody please get me started? How can I create a database on my server? My second question is if it is possible to use MS Access with MySQL? If so do I only need to change the links in the code to the MS Access database?

Do you have telnet or ssh access to your webspace? That'd be the best way to work on your mysql database. Usually the administrator of the account creates your database, then you create as many tables under it as you want.
Once the database is created, you can use the mysql installed on your own computer to connect.
mysql -uusername -p -hwww.yourhost.com
