Shared Hosting of Fogbugz php version

Is it possible to host the php version of Fogbugz on a regular shared hosting plan with an ISP, assuming no root access.

Ah, found some instructions here: http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBUGZ/KB/setup/InstallingonUnix-2.html

Has anybody here actually tried this?

I started but haven't  finished yet, it's much more complex than it should be although I don't claim to be a Unix expert.

Would you mind telling me if you ever succeed. I'm really keen on buying FogBugz to host on my shared account, but I'm not sure whether it will work or not.

It basically comes down to whether your host has all the system requirements installed or not.  If they do, it shouldn't be difficult, but if they don't, there isn't much you can do.  The extension_dir has to be set to "." in php.ini and you will need to make sure they have the following PEAR modules for php installed, XML_Tree, Auth_SASL, and Mail_Mime.

It'd be handy if there was a PHP file I could put on my web site that would check if all of the required pieces were in the right place.  This way someone who is considering a FogBUGZ purchase could verify their host's compatibility before purchasing.

That's basically exactly what this page is:

Okay, so "basically exactly" is a contradiction; I'll pass on your suggestion that we have one convenient .php file, but I think you'll find this page meets your need.
