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

Hello everyone,

I have successfully set up the openstreetmap website under the rails port and with integreted versions of Potlatch, Potlatch 2 and iD editors.

I used the OAuth settings to generate a key and now I'am able to add new spatial objects (point, line, polygon) with ID Editor but not to edit my own apidb that I have set up with osmosis

In the configuration page - Populating database section, the yet-to-be-written script link doesn't point to a ready for use solution.

Do I have to create this script myself ? How can I edit an existing apidb the same way like in the openstreetmap public website ?

Hi AYARI, I'm trying to setup iD editor for my OSM server, but it's not success: "iD has been not configured". Please let me know how to config this editor. Thanks.

How solved your problem ? I'm in the same situation, rails server + nominatim + renderd installed local But ID editor not save data in local data.

@perosoft: according to his/her comment (at Simon's answer): yes. Please just post your own question on this help site and mention relevant error messages and how you have set up your bits.

I would assume that you need to change the URls in https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/blob/master/js/id/core/connection.js to point to your rails port instance to enable iD to edit your local DB.

However the 2nd part of your question is -very- confusing and would indicate that you are looking at bulk populating the DB which is a different subject.

Could you accept the answer in that case, thank you.

core/connection.js has been refactored to services/osm.js.
