Ah, we were thinking along the same lines! ;)

I had just initiated a local install inside .../www/public when I 
received your email, which is in fact the DocumentRoot for this website, 
and did:

$ chmod -R www-data:www-data context

So ConTeXt is installed in .../www/public/context.

Now I can source:

  $ . .../www/public/context/tex/setuptex .../www/public/context/tex

and it all works.

Many thanks, Luigi, for all of your suggestions.
