Hi Jean-Christophe,

This question has been asked once before that I remember -- but it took me a while to find it! See:

The basic steps are the same as installing Greenstone yourself:

1. Install Greenstone on the host server (it might have to be compiled, depending on what OS they're using).
2. Set up the host web server to allow the Greenstone library program to be run as a CGI program. This is explained in chapter
4 of the Greenstone Installer's Guide.

You will need the help of the host server administration to do these tasks.

Regarding ISPs who already know about Greenstone, Beth Nicols (see the thread above) used and found them helpful.

Good luck,
