Jekyll Site At Root and Jekyll Blog on Sub-Domain

Hi folks,

Let me see if I can explain this properly.

I’m using the Pixyll theme for Jekyll at and I’ve changed the index.html page for this URL to a static page.

This is run on an Apache web server and I now want to configure the apache virtual site to serve blog.html as the default page for and use the original index.html code from the Pixyll theme.

My question is: As far as Jekyll is concerned, do I just need to set the permalink on blog.html and any blog posts, properly? What would that permalink config look like? Also, if this is the wrong way to go about it, I’d appreciate any advice for how to make this happen.

Thank you!
