in reply to Are Perl or PHP scripts easier to secure?

We went with Perl over PHP some time ago. We knew Perl better than PHP (and here was no PHP Monks). We felt that it would be easier to secure Perl CGI scripts than PHP handlers because we knew how to navigate the relivant docs better.

As other Monks have pointed out, security isn't entirely a function of the language. You can run suexec for php cgi scripts as well as you can perl ones.
