Hello guys, I recently started work
ing on a website and I need it to access a certain database, I already have a key to this database, but I wanted to know if I have to learn PHP or SQL or both to use it.

You should generally know some simple SQL in order to access the database in such a way that doesn't completely wreck its performance.

It sounds like you have an API key. If that's the case, you'll need code server side to access the API and render HTML for a user to view. You can use PHP for that. You shouldn't be dealing with SQL unless you have some responsibility for the operation of the database.

It also sounds like you're way over your head. Maybe step back and look at how other people are doing the kind of things you're trying to do.

I already know how to create a webpage (HTML5, JS and CSS) I just wanted to know how I could get into the making of the server-side of a website, since I've learned js was not really made for that.. thanks for the clarification though I forgot to mention I didn't own the database, I was just trying to make my website interact with it.

Actually, you can do Javascript on the server. A lot of web developers today use Javascript for almost everything. I don't think it's an especially good idea, but there's no denying that it's wildly popular.
