I think you might be correct in saying that PHP won so much mindshare in the web dev arena because of Perl's somewhat fragmented consensus on web app frameworks. I wonder what it is about mod_perl that is so different from mod_php from the ISP admin's viewpoint. Is it that you can get deeper into apache and make it unstable, whereas that is harder in PHP?

I wince merely at the thought of learning much about PHP let alone writing my own stuff with it, so you're doing better than I am...

    With mod_perl you're opening up the Apache internals and have to be careful you don't leave global variables hanging around for other scripts to access. I've also heard memory management is a lot trickier with mod_perl than mod_php. mod_php doesn't access Apache's internals like mod_perl does.
