Create a public keyring with only one key: the key needed for this

You can set gpg to suid root if you want to avoid this error message and 
ensure your plaintext is not available to other processes on the server.

Use the --always-trust option to fix this error message.

Put the keyring for this app in a directory that's readable by Apache and 
specify that directory on the commandline using the --homedir option.
