I just recently built a new instance of OSM using the instructions provided on the switch2osm web site.
The instance is built on Xubuntu 14.04 and works fine, as far as it goes.
I have successfully imported dbf data for Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona.
Here is where I need help. While testing I have discovered that the slippymap.html code provided won’t work unless the server can see the internet. This runs entirely counter to what I am after, namely, running an OSM server without any internet connection whatsoever. The purpose for this instance is providing disaster recover services to our served agencies. I tend to use slippymap.html as a place to start.
The other thing I would like to see is a concise, complete set of directions on rendering tiles to a local directory.
I cannot tell you how many hours have been wasted trying to find such information. All I find are very general instructions or instructions that are vague not to mention directions that are wrong or just don’t work.
I simply want step 1, step 2, etc. Right now I haven’t the time to go on a voyage of discovery.
