    This application needs to send Data from a microcontroller through a USb port to the PC database.The database is constructed using C#! Can C# be configured to read from USB ports or do i need to use additional Language like PHP?

    You should be able to use USB in C#.

    I don't know of any PHP libraries etc that will allow PHP to access the USB ports. PHP is server side whilst the USB ports will be client side (unless it is a USB port on the server). I suppose you could "exec" an application to do the actual comms and then try and pick up the result from the "exec"d application.
