7. Update the Webserver

The webserver should be updated at least with each stable release. When updating, please follow these steps to make sure that no broken links, inconsistent contents or permission problems will occur (as it has many times in the past!):

If you have changed anything in the stable-branch documentation source SGML files, do:

  make dok && make dok-tidy

That will generate doc/webserver/user-manual, doc/webserver/developer-manual, doc/webserver/faq, doc/webserver/index.html automatically.

If you changed the manual page sources, generate doc/webserver/man-page/privoxy-man-page.html by running "make man". (This is a separate target due to dependencies on some obscure perl scripts [now in Git, but not well tested]. See comments in GNUmakefile.)

If you want to add new files to the webserver, create them locally in the doc/webserver/* directory (or create new directories under doc/webserver).

Next, commit any changes from the above steps to Git. All set? If these are docs in the stable branch, then do:

  make webserver

This will do the upload to the SourceForge webserver (which is manually syncronized with www.privoxy.org) and ensure all files and directories there are group writable.

Please do NOT use any other means of transferring files to the webserver to avoid permission problems. Also, please do not upload docs from development branches or versions. The publicly posted docs should be in sync with the last official release.
