If you spent as much time reading the INSTALL file as I did reading your sig 
text I think it would all make sense... you need to install php into a 
webserver (usually apache) and then install phppgadmin into the webserver. it 
operates independant of the postgresql server itself, so being on cigwyn will 
make no difference to phppgadmin.
