Is it possible to run LJ on a shared server? [Nov. 12th, 2008|04:09 pm]

I'm looking into installing LJ on my site for the first time, but it's a shared server installation, so I don't have write access to httpd.conf like the documentation suggests to use. I don't know much about Perl, but I'm guessing the only critical things from the example httpd.conf are the last two lines:
PerlSetEnv   LJHOME /home/lj
PerlRequire  /home/lj/cgi-bin/modperl.pl

So I guess my question here is, do I need access to httpd.conf or can I define LJHOME somewhere else (even if it means--ugh--defining it manually in each file that needs it)? And am I just crazy for considering doing this on a shared server in the first place? Is it a bad idea?

Any insight would be appreciated. :)
