I tried to get WMS tiles from geoserver like


or with another projection


But all the time I got empty tile. For grabbing them I use openlayers. All in all the tile, which should be in 19142/9530.png are located in:


So as I could understood all the tiles have pretty big offset

The offset tiles location

and I got them in the center of the map.That layer which should be in Europe

Where tile are really located

are located in the part of Africa and ocean(link 1).

That's why I couldn't use them with OSM maps and ect(because my tiles are simply empty).

Can someone help me to manage with this problem? Is this a issue of geowebcache (geoserver) or I'm doing something wrong?

I think we need to see your openlayers code to see what's going on - I don't think it is a GeoServer problem – iant Mar 26 '12 at 7:52
Ok, here it is (by the link you can see that two same layers are located in different parts of the world ). var osm =new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM("New Layer", "…{z}/${x}/${y}.png", {numZoomLevels: 18}); goodMarkers = new OpenLayers.Layer.WMS( "Gradient","";, {'layers':'world:roads', transparent: "true", tiles:"true", format: "image/png"} ); – zzzteph Mar 26 '12 at 8:09
If the data comes up off the shore of Nigeria, the data is most probably in lat/lon instead of EPSG:900913. – AndreJ Feb 25 '13 at 7:28
