The WoW client cannot write to files during a gaming session. SavedVariables are only written to file during a console reload or restart of the gaming client.

The WoW API cannot read from external sources.

You will not be able to show real-time adjustments going to or coming from a web interface. You CAN show these changes in real-time ingame and have other guild members see these changes as well, provided they have the same AddOn and somebody with the changes is logged in.

If you want to show changes on a web interface, you will have to export the changes from a game file and upload to your web server (none of which is possible until the changes are saved to file which only happens during a console reload or restart of the gaming client).
