60.4 Adding the Package to Your Archive

Once the package is correctly built load it onto your Debian archive to provide it for others to access:

  $ cp wajig_2.0.20* /var/www/debian/
  $ cd /var/www/debian/
  $ apt-ftparchive packages . > Packages
  $ apt-ftparchive sources  . > Sources
  $ gzip -c Packages > Packages.gz
  $ gzip -c Sources  > Sources.gz
  $ chmod go+r *

If this is not the machine hosting your web server, copy the files across:

  $ scp -p * user@togaware.com@togaware.com:/var/www/html/debian/

You will need to add the appropriate line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

  deb http://www.togaware.com/debian ./
  deb-src http://www.togaware.com/debian ./

If you are a Debian developer you would upload the package directly to the Debian archives using the dupload tool instead of onto your own archive.
