Either root or web user privileges are required. This is not an extraordinary requirement when performing manual server-side installations of hosted applications. I recommend contacting your hosting service to request assistance, or looking for a new hosting solution. On AWS, for example, you can have an instance of DreamFactory installed and running in about 15 minutes using a Bitnami image. Manual installations can take a bit longer, but not by much.
