RH 2017 - Do we need to compile Responsive Help on the server that hosts the output?

If we have a scenario where the Responsive help output is hosted on a Web server and accessed like this via a URL:

https://<helpserverIP/domain>/product/online_help/index.htm

when we have new content added to the help files, can we compile the Responsive output on a local laptop and then just replace the online_help folder on the helpserver?

Is there any chance that the output will break when we access https://<helpserverIP/domain>/product/online_help/index.htm?

And for what reason? Any specific files to be careful of?

or does the output need to be compiled by installing RH 2017 on the helpserver by opening the source code from SVN?

Hi thereTo the best of my knowledge, where the help is hosted is totally agnostic to where the development machine is. So you can use any PC you want to edit and create the help, then publish that output to any server you like and as long as all the output files are copied all should be happy and work well.Cheers...
