Bugzilla on shared DH? Alternatives?

With mod_perl unsupported in shared hosting, DH recommends FastCGI, but there is currently no solid support for FastCGI for Bugzilla.

Is anyone running Bugzilla in a shared host here?
Are there any instructions for patching to do this?
Is VPS an absolute requirement?

I’ve used Mantis Bug Tracker in the past and was happy with it, but I’d like to be a bit more standards-oriented, and Bugzilla really is a leader in this area. So if we can’t use Bugzilla then I’ll use Mantis and would recommend it to others.

Any other suggestions?


Redmine is pretty decent, and a heck of a lot nicer to work with than Bugzilla. It should be relatively straightforward to deploy using Passenger. (It’s a Rails app.)
