I have a site which is using quite much maps and has quite a lot of users (from 2000 to 10 000 in a day)
Currently using Google Maps but now changing to OSM and Leaflet.
I am still considering should I host a own tile server, or is there a free or relatively cheap tile server available
for my needs? Tiles are needed only for 1 european country.
Can anyone recommend some reliable tile serving service or which are my options?
Also I would like to know is it possible to download the png files once to own server from somewhere?
I did quickly look the Linux installation quide for the tile server but was not able to install it on my AWS EC2 debian vpc.
If I manage to do that, is 2GB 1 core enough to create the tiles? Can I server the tiles through cloudfront?
"osm2psql version 0.96.0 (64 bit id space)
using lua based tag processing pipeline with script /root/src/openstreetmap-carto/openstreetmap-carto.lua
Using projections SRS 3857 (Spherical Mercantor)
Osm2pgsql failed due to ERROR: Connection to database failed: FATAL: role “root” does not exist.
Tried to run that with other user but cos I have low knowledge of Ubuntu dont know what to do now. previous steps seemed to go fine.
Thank you for your help. I eneded up using Maperitive, it is perfect for my use because currently I do not need up to date maps. I use it to create the 8-bit PNG files and serve them from my apache server which has AWS CloudFront in front of it.
