Manually building a tile server (18.04 LTS)

I'd like to set up my own tile-server and have worked through the instructions  at-

https://switch2osm.org/manually-buildin … 18-04-lts/

This all works as it should and I can see the appropriate map at “http://localhost/sample_leaflet.html“.

At present on my webpages I'm useing tiles from OpenTopoMap and access these via 'http://{s}.tile.opentopomap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png'.

I expect I need to change this to something like 'http://{s}.tile.myserver.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png'

My question is – what do I need at the above url to serve up the tiles?

Re: Manually building a tile server (18.04 LTS)

Yes - something like that.  The https://github.com/SomeoneElseOSM/mod_t … aflet.html file actually contains:

L.tileLayer('http://127.0.0.1/hot/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
    attribution: '&copy; <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors'
}).addTo(map);

If that works, then to access these tiles externally then you'll need to use a URL like "http://myserver.org/hot/{z}/{x}/{y}.png".  You can change the "hot" part to something else by editing "renderd.conf" and restarting the server.

Many thanks for the reply, it's slowly beginning to make sense and i can now access tiles as you describe above:)
