I'm having what you could call a bad day, now I'm not an very experienced user of PHP but I know enough to install scripts and get them looking how i want them to.

I'm trying to install Gallery, unfortunatly my new virtual host runs PHP in safe mode which renders the script useless, after reading their FAQ I found that i can run PHP as CGI and place the script in there.

Now I have a problem I cannot compile this on the server as i don't have the permissions or access to do so, is there anywher i can get a pre-compiled version of php.cgi with newbie type instructions?

Honestly, when PHP safemode is on, some scripts cant run at all. For example, installation of invision board skins would require you to do it manually.
