To expand a little on John Rowe's reply to Noam:

You need to install the Web Library version of Greenstone onto the
computer that hosts your website (the Local Library version is not
suitable for running on the internet). Then you need to configure the
webserver program for Greenstone. Both these topics are described in the
Greenstone Installer's Guide.

Lastly, to make your collection available on the web you need to copy it
into this new Greenstone installation (on the hosting computer). You
don't need to "export" it, just copy the collection folder from the
"collect" directory of your local Greenstone.
