Go for PHP its 10 times  better then ASP and is more reliable then ASP. You
can connect to the Access Database fairly easily as well with PHP (you can
also connect through ODBC DSN based connection).

Although Mysql would be preferrable to using Acccess if its just for single
page u can also use Access. PHP has the lease learning curve in programming
language (its very similar to C in syntaxes). Let me point u to one of the
good tutorials available at:

Just my point of view "Dumping stability for vulnerability would be BAD,
similarly dumping Apache for IIS or PHP for ASP would be ridiculous just
because in long term this products will allow prove to be far better then
any MS products".

Hope that does the trick.
