I have successfully built my tile server by following this link (https://switch2osm.org/manually-building-a-tile-server-18-04-lts/) and open layers for viewing the tiles.

How do I keep automate the process of updating my tile server periodically from OpenStreetMap server?

I couldn't find any tutorial related to the same.

I read that Mapnik has tools that pulls data from the OpenStreetMap periodically but could not figure out how to get it up and running. I also tried to do it using the updating section of (https://switch2osm.org/serving-tiles/building-a-tile-server-from-packages/) but it wasn't helpful too.

The solution can be found at How do I periodically update my tile server and keep it up to date in the OpenStreetMap Help.
