The QGIS web client only loads the background layers in the helloworld map. In the natural earth I only get the shaded relief.

I open the example project in QGIS Desktop and it works fine. Then I added a shapefile and now the web client shows the background layers and the shapefile but not the data from the helloworld.db

I tried to install QGIS server by following the tutorials of the following links http://hub.qgis.org/projects/quantum-gis/wiki/QGIS_Server_Tutorial and http://anitagraser.com/2012/04/06/qgis-server-on-windows7-step-by-step/

I think the web-client is installed correctly but something is wrong with the server.

Has anybody some idea?


Usually this is related to different projections of your source data. Try to make sure:

  1. Your project coordinate system is set
  2. All your layers have their projections (coordinate system) defined and it's correct

QGIS should be able to overlay one layer over another automagicaly

  • it doesn't solve the problem. the helloworld map is EPSG: 4857. al layers inside have this and the project-file too. I only can see the shp file in the Web Client and when i want to add the project as wmts layer over the local server in OSGeo4W\apps\qgis\bin – bukmop Mar 5 '15 at 12:33
