I have installed:

on a server: mapnik, openstreetmap-carto and mod_tile in apache2

in another: postgresql, postgis

where I have to put the connection parameters to the database: user, password, host, port, ...

I tried:

 set | grep MAPNIK

with the same result

Do I have to install Mapnik-style (default) Or there somewhere to register values?

I've never run Postgres on a different server, but I think you'd have to change the osm2pgsql connection settings inside the openstreetmap-carto project.

Add a host/user/etc value to this part:

  osm2pgsql: &osm2pgsql
    type: "postgis"
    dbname: "gis"
    key_field: ""
    geometry_field: "way"
    extent: "-20037508,-20037508,20037508,20037508"

See also: Mapnik's PostgreSQL settings.

The openstreetmap-carto style makes use of some shapefiles, you will need to have them locally on the mapnik server, not the postgresql server.

I execute "carto project.mml > osm.xml" if I change something in project.yaml then nothing changes in osm.xml and everything stays the same.

Where I add this: PostGIS_user-content-usage-from-c it can be the solution
