I am still fairly new to the world of web design, so please have patience...

How do I go about setting up member accounts on a site? I know I need a database, will Access work? If so how do I go about setting this up?

Well it depends - member accounts for what? For a shop? For a club? For a forum? Or something else?

You'll need a script and a databases probably. What script will depend on the answer to the above question.

As for access, well if you have windows hosting, and a script that is writen to run for the access database, then you could. But really access is not a suitable databases for online systems. It does not have the features required for use on the web. You'd either be looking at MS SQL or MySQL depending on what your hosting provider supports.
