How to upload HTML files saved on the local drive using the macro HTML-include

I am trying to test some HTML pages that are saved in my local directory--I tried using the macro HTML-include. It fails to find the file. Doesn't the html-include macro not support this option?

The HTML include macro is used to simply include a HTML page that is accessible for the Confluence instance. I believe the easiest way for you would be to use the HTML macro instead and copy the source of the pages mentioned directly to the Confluence page.

However, whenever you change the local contents, you will need to manually update it in Confluence too.

A workaround for this could be to place the HTML files on a publicly available server, include it from there and not from your local drive.

Kind regards,
