Solution that is Synchronized with a Website

I would like to make a solution that is synchronized with a website. MySQL is the websites database. I want the FileMaker 17 solution to be able to update when a change is made on the website and vice-versa. I am very savvy with PHP (but a little rusty at the moment). I see that there are documents from FileMaker that talk about using PHP, XML and ODBC drivers interacting with an online database. I also see there are plugins (i.e 360Works MirrorSync) that seem to help with this. I am not interested in FileMaker Server being a part of this. Could someone advise or give direction to ideas, documents, and conventions?
