Perhaps you need more space for your OpenStreetMap database and decide to move it to your shiny new big disk or RAID array? Sound good? Here we go. We need to create a tablespace for the database, then use it.

sudo mkdir /raid/newgis
sudo chown postgres:postgres /raid/newgis

Where's that awesome tutorial?!?!?

The articles on how to install and test your own OpenStreetMap tile server are some of the most popular articles on weait.com. I have retrieved these articles from the archives. While dated in places, you might find them helpful. Comments are welcome but the articles are essentially unmaintained at this time.

The two versions of the tutorial can be found here.
