I want to add my 2 cents if I may! Mignon is right, if you don't use mod_perl, you will find that you'll slow your webserver to snail pace when PERL scripts are Requested.

If you do Perl you really *ought* to do mod_perl. It not only gives you all the speed of PHP if not more, it gives you control of apache. You can intercept the apache request phases with mod_perl. One, imho, major reason for choosing PHP is for the ease of application deployment. It is ever so much easier to deploy PHP apps than Perl apps (unless the Perl app is written as a very plain cgi and uses no or few CPAN modules, extropia is an example). Of course a lot of the apps written in PHP drive me nuts and I don't use them but with Smarty and a more OO approach you can develop some apps that are easy to debug and evolve.
