On a shared server the current trend is to have PHP run as a CGI with 
phpsuexec or something similar that runs the scripts with your user 
permissions instaed of the webserver's. Such a setup allows 
per-directory configuration of PHP: try putting a php.ini file there 
with your session_timeout value.
