very cool idea. I can say that I made it work already but it very much
depends on the shared host setup.

To give you the necessary pointers:

Seems so ;)

So set filepermissions does not a big deal of magic basically it just
sets file permissions. The trick is, that Flow executes shell php
commands and this is the tricky part. You need to find out if and with
which path the hoster has installed a PHP CLI binary that matches your
web PHP version. This will be executed and the file permissions must be
so that the webserver user as well as the command line (and ftp -
probably the same) can access everything. Especially the Data,
Configuration and Web folder need to be writeable too of course. That's

If you end up with some particular error message just pass by again,
maybe we can work around that.
