Which is the best solution for shared database meeting these requirements?

I currently have a Microsoft Access database, with different forms to facilitate the user interface. I would like to now give access to this database to roughly 20 users - so I need to be able to track who updates what.

"So far, the closest I come to my objective was:
- an mysql database,
- an apache http web server,
- with phpmyadmin to administer the database,
all packaged in xampp;

But I am missing at least some front-end web forms, for example based on php, to let users view and edit the database content.

There are some tools that generate php forms. I have tested for example PHP Mysql Web Database Application Code generator. This software created for me with a click of a button a complete set of web forms, including menus, and forms to view and edit content. BUT... there were some bugs so I dropped it...

so I am still looking.

Right now, I am looking into phpmyedit for creating my web forms.
It is free, and seems to work so far. I have created some forms. But I am not satisfied yet with the forms and need to customize them."
