I try to host osm map locally on my server. I follow this tutorial Rendering OSM on ubuntu And manage to installed mapserver and mapcache. The problem is, when I try to zoom the map it can only zoom once and other will just repeatedly create the same tile, sorry i couldnt post the image, since im new here

What I understand is when I enter : localhost/mapcache/demo/tms then apache server will look for xml file (mapcache-osm.xml) and the xml file will find call the mapfile and then it will generate the tile. Is it true? Please correct me.

I still couldnt figure out how to make the zoom right, did I miss something on installation?

I also test the TMS on opelayer site as recommended by the tutorial site. But the result is the same. I thought if the mapfile and database(postgis) connect successfully then it will generate the tile and I will be able to see all the tile at any zoom level. Or is there something that I need more to create the zoom features? Beacuse I found that if I enter localhost/mapcache/demo/tms then the xml file generate openlayers automatically. Am I wrong? Please correct me with the concept.

Any help I really appreciate. Thankyou very much
