Hello, I bulid my own tile server using mod_tile, mapnik, PostgreSql, osm2psql, Apache2, leaflet based on ubuntu16.04. But after I used the command "osm2pgsql --slim -d gis -C 3600 --hstore -S openstreetmap-carto-2.41.0/ chongqing_china.osm.pbf" to update my database. I was sure that the database was updated. But when I typed my ip in my broswer, what I could see wes my previous mapdata not my new data. What should I do to see my new imported mapdata?

First time I use the command I can see the map that is what i imported, But when I use the command to import a different area to the same database, I still only see the previous map. I did renderded again and restarted apache. Hope someone could help me! Thanks very much.

You'll need to stop and restart renderd and apache

sudo /etc/init.d/renderd restart
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

you'll want to remove old tiles:

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mod_tiles/wherever/?
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mod_tiles/wherever/??

and the first time you view the new area in a web browser you'll need to clear-cache or "shift-refresh" to force load a new tile.
