How now, do you figure PHP is all that slow? Since you have a background 
in PHP why not use it? Maybe your not skinning the cat right? PHP is already 
used in admin apps and it works. Create a Three Tier Web Application to run 
on the one admin server. Calls can be made via rpc or xml web services to 
the clients. May take a while to think it out in your brain but it will work.
I do it with .Net.
