There are two things which need to be setup. The main /etc/renderd.conf
file and the Apache config directives. In /etc/renderd.conf you need to
define the names of your styles and the mapping to the URI and xml
files:

  [Default]
  URI=/osm_tiles2/
  XML=/home/jburgess/mapnik/osm-local.xml

In an Apache config file you need to tell it to load the module and tell
it where the previous configuration file is located:

  LoadModule tile_module modules/mod_tile.so
  LoadTileConfigFile /etc/renderd.conf

The Apache LoadTileConfigFile option can be inside a virtual server
definition or at the top level.
