Hosting HTML pages (about 1000) and making is searchable

I have a large number of HTML pages (API reference) that need to hosted and made searchable. I don't have experitise in php or Javascript and am having a hard time converting. I have tried the plugin h2c, but it didn't work correctly.

My HTML pages are grouped and have a collapsible menu.

I am still evaluating Confluence to see if it works for us. Any advise on how to host the html pages without the need of php/Javascript expertise?

What problems did you encounter with the H2C plugin?

Just my 2c, but I don't think confluence is the best place for API docs, eg javadoc or whatnot. You should give something like nexus OSS a try.

We already generate the files using Doxygen like tool. But we cannot host those files (HTML) generated by doxygen on Confluence. That is why I am having the problem.

For static files, you do not need Confluence

Use doxygen to generate the files from the Java sources. Doxygen really has some nice features to build an index on those files (static!).

You will have to read the manual, but it's free and has very good results. At least for me, it was great.

You can even take out the generated files and include them in your own javadoc (if you do not like the style, which you can configure, btw).

Doxy rules !

Hi, to host static html files, you simply need a web server, e.g. nginx, apache, IIS or lighthttpd. If you need Confluence along with these html files, you can add another context in Tomcat to point Tomcat that hosts Confluence to these extra files.
