Hello everyone,

If anyone is so inclined, could you post onto the OSM wiki a page with 
the following files:

If you have successfully installed OSM rails port, mapnik, mod_tile, and 
nominatim the following would be helpful to the community:


* The vhost entry to apache

* renderd.conf
- With some explanation of the "URI" component in the file as it relates 
to the OSM rails port (looking to see what changes need to be made to 
rails port so that it will work with the local renderer -- ie. 

- I am also interested in knowing if the "XML" component in the file is 
_ONLY_ concerned with the "osm.xml" file (or "osm-local.xml" file) and 
nothing else in the directory where the file is located.

- The "tile_dir" is commented with the following "DOES NOT WORK YET".

mapnik (svn.mapnik.org) I've noticed that there is a "www" folder. Of 
what use is that folder?

* In the SVN "svn.openstreetmap.org" there is also a "mapnik" folder. 
This folder contains the python scripts for generating the tiles/images. 
My question is, what modules use the utilities/scripts in this folder?

Still navigating my way into the OSM world...
