Well, it was not all they had, but it was easier to use than perl, especially if your host did not provide you cgi-bin access,

My recollection is that Perl/cgi became popular before PHP did. And PHP vs Perl was one contest that PHP, bad as it is and was, could rightfully win in the mid to late 1990s. PHP took the dynamic web from Perl back then and hasn't relinquished it to anyone to this day. Users of Django, RoR, and Tapestry represent an elite minority of folks who are well informed enough not to go with the PHP herd.
