Hi, Seems that the OSM tileservers are broken for me. Can't see anything untoward here:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Servers but am not sure which server(s) are relevant.

Several of my pages, and others, using OSM tiles are not displaying anything but were OK yesterday. e.g.

Anybody any ideas why I'm not seeing any OSM tiles?

Cheers, Peter

Seems to be a problem with OpenLayers and not with the OSM tiles. But I can't tell you what's wrong though.

Yes, OpenLayers is reporting JavaScript errors on those pages:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'prototype' of undefined - OpenLayers.js:1169 Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function - openlayers_simplest_example.html:7

Thanks for the answers - but Hmm.
It's still not working for me.
As some of my pages haven't changed since I know they were working I guess that openlayers must have been changed and broken, as I do point to http://www.openlayers.org/dev/OpenLayers.js
Seems that I need to install a working copy of openlayers locally.

Installing a local copy is always recommended. Otherwise your website will fail if the OpenLayers website is down or if there is a major version upgrade / API change.

You want to look here where it sais everything is OK.
Since osm.org (and some other maps based on the OSM tiles I checked) seems fine for the most people the problem is probably at your end?

It seems that indeed openlayers dev is broken.
Now I found their demo using openlayers 2.13.1 and it's fine - so I'll go off and install 2.13.1 on my server. http://dev.openlayers.org/releases/OpenLayers-2.13.1/examples/osm.html
