You probably can't. If your ISP is in control of the machine (that is, you don't have a dedicated server that you control), there is probably no way for you to change those settings.

Usually, you need to contact your ISP (or maybe they have a FAQ on their web site that explain the steps you need to perform) and explain you need to access a database. When that's included in your hosting package, they either set the right permissions on your database folder, or they give you a DSN that points to some database. How this works, is fully up to your ISP.

So, the best thing to do is contact them and explain your situation.
