My background in ColdFusion, Apache/PHP, etc. I have a domain where I tinker, and asked tech support if I could put Grav in a sub-directory and try it out. They said I would have to point the domain name to that one directory? If putting it on that server is not practical, then how much space would basic Grav+Admin occupy on a local drive?
Since you said you are just tinkering around, I would suggest setting it up locally. A basic Grav setup would only be around a few MBs.
Ok. Path of least resistance.
