Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I have setup the RailsPort according to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Rails_port and now can access it through http://localhost:3000/. The tiles are being accessed from tile.openstreetmap.org. However I want it to point to tile.localhost where I've already setup apache with mod_tile.

Where do I change the configuration in the RailsPort for this?

I think I got the answer for this. I changed the lines in file /<path>/openstreetmap-website/vendor/assets/openlayers/OpenStreetMap.js

initialize: function(name, options) {
    var url = [

and it works great.

I guess he replaced tile.openstreetmap.org with tile.localhost:3000.

No, this localhost:3000 is the url of the same rails port, not tile server.

I have been changing http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org for http://localhost/osm in every file I found in /<path>/openstreetmap-website/ but it looks like has not effect, I keep getting always the tiles from openstreetmap.org.

I need to see and edit my tile server info. please help.
