It depends upon what the shared hosting service requires and/or provides.
Many assume a PHP server, rather than providing a full Java servlet
environment. Shared hosting generally provides a set of framework tools
that you are restricted to use. For ODK Aggregate, that set of tools needs
to provide: (1) a Java 2.5 servlet container and (2) either a MySQL or
PostgreSQL database. These are generally not provided by 'shared hosting'
If you want to just rent a server and set up your own copy of ODK
The CTOSurvey team contributed a wiki on setting up a server on AWS:
Nafundi maintains a VM image (Virtual Machine image) that most any server
farm can accept and deploy to a rented server. Their blurb:
The ODK Aggregate VM is a fully-configured version of Aggregate that runs
on any computer. It requires very little setup, works well without Internet
connectivity, and gives you complete control of where your data goes.
