Building, Installation, Maintaining and Updating OSM Tile Server

Sorry - i also have this written on the Q&A site, but not sure which gets most traffic!

Hi Guys, So before I start - I have done a lot of research into this, but I always seem to get stuck at the same issue.

Firstly, the setup:

Hardware: Xeon D-1520 - 32GB - Hybrid SoftRaid 2x2tb + 2x480GB SSD

Software: Ubuntu Server 16.04 “Xenial Xerus” LTS

The Problem:

So - I’ve managed to get a OSM tile server running by importing europe.osm.pbf by following an article here:

Which got me as far as being able to render tiles and display them via a leaflet map, however, the problem is, that map is now out of date and i cant for the life of me figure out how to go about updating what is in the database currently.

So, 2 questions

  1. Is that guide linked above the recommended way to setup a tile server, if not, what would be the best guide?
  2. If that guide is fine - how would one go about updating my current Europe tiles to a more up to date version

Please try to be as descriptive as possible as this is still a relatively new thing to me.
