Move Jekyll website?


#1

Hello,

I am a beginner and would like to publish a Jekyll website that exists on github.com on a VM in the local server so that the page is accessible via it.
Can someone help me and tell me how to do that?

Best Regards,
G.M.

if you download the source and build it locally, you will end up with a folder called _site - that contains the website and can be moved to another host.

Thank you for the fast answer.
With the command “bundle exec jekyll serve” I create a jekyll page on my local server, right?
But how can I replace or re-copy the page from github.com?

Yes.

For that you can use git and connect your local repo with github repo.
