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


I have a question about this tutorial [1] [2]. I have followed the steps as explained, but I get no map in my browser. I do not know where the problem could be. I've done the tutorial twice, but always with the same result. Can someone please give me a hint?

My systems: Debian 6.0.2 (first try) and Debian 6.0.0 (second try)

Take a look into the dir /var/lib/tirex/tiles/osm to see if tiles are correctly generated.

Thank you for your quick response. I have checked it and the folder /var/lib/tirex/tiles/osm is missing. But "tirex-status --once --extended" shows me

Maps: Name Renderer Zoom Tiledir
example mapnik 0- 4 /var/lib/tirex/tiles/example
osm mapnik 0-18 /var/lib/tirex/tiles/osm
surveillance mapnik 0-18 /var/lib/tirex/tiles/surveillance test test 0-10 /var/lib/tirex/tiles/test

Do I have to create the folder manually?

Maybe you can address your problem to a more specific discussions forum/list …

Ok, thanks, I'll do that.

yes i succeeded. i created the folder


and gave permission to tirex

chown tirex:tirex /var/lib/tirex/tiles/

That's usually necessary to enable tirex to write to that locations.

Hi. Please create a new question for your problem. You can find the documentation on OSRM here https://github.com/DennisOSRM/Project-OSRM/wiki/Running-OSRM

Please have a look at the switch2osm.org site, the instructions there are maintained and kept up to date. Particularly wrt osm2pgsql old instructions tend to be misleading.
