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


I need to export some data and after selecting the area when I click on Export it opens a File Not Find Error page.

Is this usual? should I keep trying? should I contact someone?

this is the url of the area to export: https://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/map?bbox=-8.5688%2C40.8598%2C-8.4464%2C40.9219 .

yes, this is usual. Your requested area is too big or contains too much data. For details see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6 . Note that this API is meant for editing OSM - not really for making just data requests.
