I installed Web App Builder 2.15 earlier this year and am able to run it, customize apps, etc. However, I am losing my mind over how stuck I am on this seemingly simple step in this documentation for deploying said customized app. I download the app and unzip the file. But then what the heck do I actually do to deploy it on our web server? When I run WAB locally, it is an 'unsecure' browser url containing my machine name running in Chrome. I don't understand how downloading the app, deploying it to the sever, and THEN editing config files etc works. We are running ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8 with Portal and use a SAML authentication. I'm the only one that would be using WAB / developing any apps to then share out for our other org users. It also is not entirely clear to me if I do need to use a proxy or not, and if so, how to even determine what the proxy would be. The use proxy documentation did not make any sense to me. 

Clearly I am not a developer and feel this must be a very stupid question!

If you are running IIS then you want to put the folder in your inetpub\wwwroot on the server.

the unzipped folder containing the app, you mean? On the enterprise hosting server/arcgis server?

Yes the unzipped folder. What ever server your web adapter is located on.
