Question What is the best language for Linux/Apache Scripts?

I am learning my first programming language, PHP but what is the best language for writing Linux/Apache scripts for shuch things as Administrating a server from a web browser Like Apps?

I believe Plesk was written in PHP.

Is Perl or C better for Plesk type programming?
Or is a combination of both?

If you have experience in Plesk type apps please share your thoughts or arguments.

Also if you have experience in Linux programming in general, please share your thoughts and opinions.

combination of two langs

I use PHP and DSO modules for apache. I can rapidly develop with PHP because of it's easy learning curve and object support. The Zend compiler makes the scripts execution fast and efficient.
PHP provides a structured and clean language that is very easy to maintain. Maintainance, especially on dynamic sites, is a very important factor to me.
