Not install, per se, but copy to an htaccess-protected directory, use it and remove it.

Occasionally, I need perl modules built which the ISP cannot or will not install into the system-wide perl directory; with this I could PERL5LIB={local lib directory} perl Makefile.PL LIB={local lib directory}; make; make test; make install to install into a local lib directory of a site I am working on.

Some canned scripts (I admit it, I sometimes use them) require a variable set to the absolute path of some directory they need; running a simple pwd gives me the prefix of the chroot'ed site.

You cannot always spec out an ISP that permits telnet access; sometimes, while building a rep with clients, you have to work with what they've got. THEN, when they trust you enough to follow your advice, move them to another ISP
