I'm making a web interface for my mp3 box and I just had a look at two web interfaces that I know of. They are Smoothwall and Webmin. They have both been built using perl. As far as I know, they can modify files on the machine and issue commands. Can anyone tell me if this can be done with PHP? I would hate to learn perl because from looking at sample code, it looks like a hell of a language to learn because its not very readable. So like I was asking, can this be done with PHP?

Cheers!
