I need to install a sandboxed solution to my site (SPWeb). However I am not a site collection administrator, and therefore cannot access the solution gallery that exists at the site collection level. I am a site (SPWeb) administrator though. How can I deploy my solution on the site (SPWeb) that I am admin of? Or do I have to ask the site collection admin to upload my .wsp to the site solution gallery for me?

You'll need to ask a Site Collection Admin to upload it for you if you don't have the right permission.

A sandboxed solution is installed by a site collection administrator to the site collection's solution gallery. This gallery also shows the current resource usage, average resource usage over the past two weeks, and the status of each sandboxed solution.

Yeah, I figured as much (and I also saw that documentation). I guess it can't be done using powershell either, since I can't access the server anyway. Btw, do you know of any way how I can tell what the URL is of the site collection? –  KyleM Apr 30 '12 at 12:36
    
A site-collection url will either look like: "_http://www.mysite.com" OR "_http://www.mysite.com/sites/mysitecollection" (without _) and "sites" can be replaced by other values... –  Ruben Herman Apr 30 '12 at 12:40
    
The sitecollection usually starts either at the root / or one level below sites, but can be setup in Central Administration to start at any level. –  Per Jakobsen Apr 30 '12 at 17:05
