I have a wiki project created from Quadralay Webworks, how do I deploy it for customers to access and use?

I have a massive help system that I have used webworks to generate confluence output for.   Looks like it gives me wiki-confluence.deploy file and the a ton of stuff in a folder sitting next to that.   Looking through Quadralay docs I don't see anything obvious that explains what to do.

Can you guys help me?

 

thanks,

meg

Hmm, interesting question Meg. My partner and I used to use WebWorks a lot in our prior world.  

There was a large movement on this Confluence path a few years back, but not sure where this is at these days. What version of WebWorks and Confluence are you using?  

Here's an old blog by Sarah Maddox (former Atlassian technical writer) and also one by Bill Arconati (Confluence PM), working with WebWorks 2009; some insightful nuggets for your research. Here's a video:

Note, I have no idea if all this is still supported/possible. The video is running the process with Confluence 2.10.2, so being a wiki-markup version of Confluence, the porting might have broken for Confluence 4.X+. The fact that you got a completed compile of your doc for this "output type" is encouraging. I couldn't find any more current documentation on the topic though, which is not encouraging. 

Be great if you tried this out anyways since you have the tools right there, and report back on your results and how far you get on this. Even if it fails. Would be great to have an update on this. 

Saw this - https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/11977375/xml-rpc-functionality-deprecated-in-newest-version-of-confluence XML RPC is also a dependency for the WebWorks solution. Seems it's no longer supported, but WebWorks SHOULD imho update/support this solution you are seeking Meg.

You will find the requested information under

http://www.webworks.com/Documentation/Reverb/index.html#page/01.Welcome%2520to%2520ePublisher%2FPlanning%2520and%2520Installing.5.23.htm

and

We are using ePublisher 2012.2 and Confluence 5.5.2 and the import works. But the result looks rather confusing due to the fact each image becomes an own Confluence page and each Confluence page gets an additional css-page aside.
