According to this comment by TheDJ, all tiles from are not available anymore, unless someone volunteers to keep maintaining that server:

FYI. I have now made tiles return a static image. I don't feel like dragging this thing on for another 4 years as it is not really something i enjoy. Especially with the unreliability of the OSM database sync for wmflabs and no one invested in fixing that either. This means the following:

  1. Standard multilingual OSM mapnik tiles will no longer be available to the community. Use${z}/${x}/${y}.png instead
  2. The hillshading tiles will not longer be available (i know of no alternative)
  3. The hikebike map that we were hosting will no longer be available
  4. The OMS black and white and nolabels style will no longer be available

If anyone is interested in taking it over, i'm willing to show you around the server. If no one volunteers, it will likely be deleted soon in the upcoming purge:

I understand. The answer is very clear. Very kind. Thanks.

"Utilisez${z}/${x}/${y}.png à la place" C'est-à-dire ? C'est du chinois pour moi et je ne doit pas être probablement le seul.

That tile layer is in the local language.'s tiles try to render a latin name (see e.g. ) so perhaps that would work for you. Check for usage information.

Merci pour la réponse. J'ai suivi le lien mais quel rapport avec LNM ? Que faire et comment le faire ?

I rather think BluePas meant that "Utilisez${z}/${x}/${y}.png à la place" sounds Chinese (in the sense of: "not understandable") to him. @BluePas: Use a different tile layer in umap. Click the arrow down on the left side to expand the menu, then choose the "layer chooser" (that icon is a pile of papers) and choose a different map background, e.g. OSM-FR or OpenStreetMap.

https://{s}{z}/{x}/{y}.png This worked for me.

While tile layer did you select in umap? I suspect that tile layer is a wikipedia one, and it is broken.

That would also suggest that the person to contact is .
