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


Following this tutorial (Rails Port, OpenStreetMap website) https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/INSTALL.md , I successfully installed my local server and it is working. When I go to my server adress, the website just looks like OpenStreetMap's website.

Now I want to use in JOSM my local server instead of http://api.openstreetmap.org/api alt text But I have this error Failed to retrieve a list of changesets from the OSM API server at 'http://localhost'. The server responded with the return code 404 instead of 200. Please check the spelling of 'http://localhost' and validate again

Any help will be appreciated Thanks

What does the log of your web server say about JOSM's connection request?

You can now view the site in your favourite web-browser at http://localhost:3000/, says the tutorial - perhaps you need to set the API server URL to http://localhost:3000/?

Thank you for your help. I just had to use http://localhost:3000/api and not http://localhost:3000
