Why erlang.org and ericsson.com use Apache/Perl/PHP instead of inters/Erlang?

Apache and INETs aren't really intended for the same thing.
Apache is primarily designed to run large sites and it does that quite
well. There's a rich collection of tools for Apache and lots of
people know how to run it.
Inets, on the other hand, is just a part of Erlang's libraries. Great
if you have an Erlang-based product and want a webserver on it so
people can do O&M from a browser. Infinitely customisable and really
easy to interface to the rest of your Erlang code, but definitely not
optimised for performance or ease of use for running a mostly static
site like erlang.org.
If you want to push the envelope, take a look at
