Hi guys, I succeeded in setting up my own tile server with OSM data by following this great tutorial:

As said in the tutorial I can see the map at http://localhost/osm/slippymap.html. Now, I'd like to go further. How can I access slippymap.html file?

A more up to date version of those instructions are here. With regard to using tiles, have a look at these pages.

This link was very helpful! However, I still can't find this slippymap.html file...

Oops - that would be because I linked to the wrong page.

You'll need an html page using a javascript library to display the tiles you've created. Leaflet's probably the easiest to get started with, so I'd look here:

Thanks! I'll see that then.

For those who may be interested, I found slippymap.html. It's located in /var/www/osm

Hi, I have also set up the tile server and can view Slippymap.html. When I call this page from some other system, it does not work. Any idea why?

I want to run the tile server on a machinde and to be able to view the tiles from another system.
