Actually, if you are running a small site that will probably not grow too much, PHP will fit the bill, as will Cold Fusion.... BUT... IF you may want to eventually run big iron hi-vol, you will probably have to re-write into modperl or something like it...that is, if you are not into huge server farms in order to handle the load. Bottom line: Its easier to re-write Perl into modPerl, than it is to rewrite from PHP, or install a dozen extra servers. I prefer Perl, even for small sites. It don't crash for no reason as often .
Just my experiance... your mileage may differ. I am doing some sites in PHP also, by the way.. easy to learn.
