me as a Windows DAU (Dümmster Anzunehmnder User) used the direct-method:
Create in your web server's root directory the following:
a folder named 'openpgpkey' put in that folder another folder named: 'hu'.
in the openpgpkey folder put a policy file, named 'policy' it can be empty.
in the hu folder put the binary blob of your pub key(s)
to create the proper pub key do the following:
gpg --list-keys --with-wkd-hash
it will show you your pub keys data with an additional hash
in order to export your pub key do the following:
gpg --export your_pubkey >hash_as_filename
put that binary blob of your pub key in your hu folder so that the
filename shows the hash,
without the @email part.
then use Wiktor's WKD checker to check your result.
If everything went well you can try to fetch your pub key with
gpg --locate-keys juergen at email.address
Hope this helps and please report back your results.
