Installing Fogbugz Without Root Access

I'm trying to install FogBugz without root access on a shared, hosted web server.

The problem is that I cannot locate an httpd.conf or httpd2.conf web server configuration file, so I cannot install the program even after successfully getting through the previous installation steps.

Has anyone else been successful at installing on a regular old shared, hosted web account?  Any advice, tips, helpful hints?

Thanks,
Joe

You may have to manually run through some of the installation.

For instance, the installer automatically updates php.ini and httpd.conf which you can't do.

Hopefully the changes it makes to php.ini won't have to be made and the extension_dir is set to ".".

Then all you have to do is put fogbugz in one of your web directories and move accessories\fogbugz.conf to .htaccess
