you probably can write it in C, and compile it to make it run.
but if you're thinking of something like PERL, which requires
/usr/bin/perl (or something like that), then i suppose you can't
(all above assuming UN*X server)

if it's an NT server. PERL might work, just write the PERL script
and compile using perl2exe and upload to server.

(maybe you might want to come up with more details about the server?)
