I've successfully implemented an osm server and registered potlatch with it. I don't have anything in my db yet and i use osm's tiles as base layer.

The problem is that when i draw a line in potlatch2 and edit it's properties i can't see the changes in the view pane.In fact,i can't see anything there except the base layer (tiles). Potlatch saves successfully, i can still see my changes in the edit pane after i even restart my server + refresh page.

Any guesses?

Are you rendering your own tiles? Have you configured your site to point to your own tiles?

No, i'm not rendering my owm tiles. Is that why i can't see my changes? Should i make my own tiles and rerender them after any change i make?

You need to render a set of tiles from your data using Mapnik (or some other renderer) in order to be able to see it in the View tab. There are many questions and answers about this subject in this system already.

Does this process goes somehow like this: export with osmosis to xml > import the xml into GIS db > configure mapnik to render the necessary portion > do the rendering. ?
