We had to step down from a VPS to a shared-hosting server. Once signed up I found out I could not use Jekyll on this server.
I have happily used Jekyll and would prefer to continue to use it . Is there some way use only part of it, i.e. flat-files? I am sorry. I don’t have the knowledge or terminology to even ask for help properly!
If this can’t be done, could you suggest a static blog generator which would work for me on a shared server.
Some shared hosting servers can run Jekyll, although often the setup is more complicated due to shared-hosting limitations (no root access, outdated Ruby, etc).
If you can’t run Jekyll on the server, then another option is to run it on your local machine and then sftp/rsync the
_site directory up to the shared server.
Thank-you so much for your courteous reply. Because Jekyll was set up on the previous server, my brain was not seeing the big picture. Puts on glasses and turns on the light. Of course you can upload the files, it is Jekyll!
The HTML files are now uploaded: no fuss no muss.
