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

I want to generate map tiles over India. How to set zoom levels while generating tiles?

Also, I am working on basic example. Following link is displayed on htmp file "Data CC-By-SA by OpenStreetMap"

I want to remove it since I am using my own tiles. How do I remove it?

I don't think you should remove the CC-BY-SA link since you are using OSM data, aren't you?

Ok. No problem. How do I generate India map tiles will all detailed zoom levels.

As Jonas said it, you should keep the legal mention of OSM paternity and license. Although, you're rendering your own tiles, you're doing that with OSM data. I suppose you're using OpenLayers, and for your information, you can modify the "attribution" attribute in the Layer constructor.

For generating tiles, you can use the generate_tiles.py script provided by mapnik, see this documentation

I have not added any specific attribution in my code. Is this the default attribution?

how do I change it? I tried it by adding follwoing line, but not working

var newLayer = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM("New Layer", "world_tiles/${z}/${x}/${y}.png", {numZoomLevels: 10},{'attribution': 'Test Map'});

try something like this: {numZoomLevels: 10, 'attribution': 'Test Map'}

This web site is a simple Q&A site, not a forum neither a good place to explain how to set-up your own tile server.

I understand. I have already set up my own tile server. Just want some info on India map tiles.
