Hi there,

It sounds to me like your rendering daemon has died - either renderd,
or tirex, depending on your original setup. Without the rendering
daemon mod_tile will continue to serve tiles that it has rendered
already, but cannot request rendering of any new tiles. The default
appearance of missing tiles on OpenLayers is a (nasty) pink
background, which again sounds like it fits your situation.
