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

Hello all, I just startet working with OSM. I installed a local postgres/postgis database and populated it with OSM-data. Is it possible to get josm to work on that local database instead of fetching data over internet from OSM-server? I want to do exercises, play a little bit around without destoying the public server. Thanks in advance Wolfgang

If you are already running the "rails-port" you already have everything you need, just point JOSM at your API URL (see https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Preferences/Connection ).

If you don't have the rails port running see: https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website

Naturally you don't actually have to run it yourself, you can use the dev servers with no danger of impacting anybody else (however they don't have a lot/any data loaded).
