CGI or Perl? For a long time CGI with Perl was a popular combination so there are a lot of documents which conflate the two.

It is possible to do CGI programming in PHP (which you already know), but PSGI[1] is the flavour du jour for server side web programming with Perl.

CGI is still a plausible option though. It has the benefit of simplicity (but isn't the most efficient option).
