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

I have followed the instructions of https://switch2osm.org/serving-tiles/manually-building-a-tile-server-20-04-lts/ and it worked initially, but after rebooting I get the following error message:

The "Running renderd in the background" part of https://switch2osm.org/serving-tiles/manually-building-a-tile-server-20-04-lts/ ensures that access to /var/run is maintained. After a reboot, if you want to run

renderd -f -c /usr/local/etc/renderd.conf

again you'll need to do

sudo mkdir /var/run/renderd
sudo chown renderaccount /var/run/renderd

again first. https://switch2osm.org/serving-tiles/manually-building-a-tile-server-20-04-lts/ doesn't mention this because it doesn't expect you to want to run "Running renderd for the first time" more than once.

Are you sure that the UNIX user you are running this under ("el") actually has write permissions on /var/run/renderd? Try the command touch /var/run/renderd/testfile to check. If that gives you an error messsage, you need to "su" into a different account or change the permissions or ownership of /var/run/renderd.
