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.

The terms Mapnik and osmarender can be confusing to OpenStreetMap newcomers. The OSM community uses the term Mapnik to refer to multiple things. osmarender also refers to more than one thing. And if that weren't enough, each of Mapnik and osmarender refer to things that are similar. We can't fix this, but perhaps we can clear it up.
