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

Hello, I installed openstreetmap-website following the guide on https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/INSTALL.md. After that I import a small .osm file to openstreetmap database. When I opened my browser and typed "localhost:3000", I signed up and login. What I saw is not only my imported data but the map all over the world just like the openstreetmap official website. So I just cannot see any differences between importing data to database openstreetmap with not importing data to database. Another thing is strange, when I click "edit" button ,I did some changes to my map and saved it, But I can only see changes in edit page, In my initial log in page I cannot see any change.

How can I see my changes on my initial page and upload changes to my local database?

@alester: I do not think so - because of "What I saw is not only my imported data but the map all over the world" and "I can only see changes in edit page" it seems (at least in this attempt) gleide successfully edits his local database, but views tiles (in the browser) from osm.org (instead of gleide's own tiles).

For gleide this likely this problem is solved in the previous question, yes.

@gleide could you please mention a real URL instead of "github /openstreetmap/install.md "?

If you solved your problem yourself in the meantime, please just post an own answer. Thanks!

It seems you successfully edit your local database, but view tiles (in the browser) from osm.org (instead of your own tiles). Please check which tiles are fetched by your browser (e.g. in Firefox via ctrl+shift+E or ctrl+shift+K and the opening your webpage http://localhost:3000 ). Possibly you need to change the tile source for this webpage to point to your own tile server.

@aseerel4c26, I have the same issue as @gleide. My OSM server's tiles come from *.tile.openstreetmap.org. Should they come from my own OSM server? If so, can you please tell me how to change the tile source server? (I used the official server installation instructions: https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/INSTALL.md)
