[2016]12== Getting Started ==
13
[6414]14To use this copy the config template related to your OS to tilesAtHome.conf,
[9997]15then edit to set your preferred config options
16the username and password for tiles upload you can set in the file
17authentication.conf, for which a template also exists.

[2016]20== Running the client ==
21
[6414]22To start generating tiles from the server queue, run "tilesGen.pl loop".
23
24If you want to render a specific tile run tilesGen.pl with the xy option
[2016]25for example if you want to render the tile number x=2148 y=1332
26(zoom 12 is always the default and cannot be changed) you would run
27./tilesGen.pl xy 2148 1332
28
[9997]29To upload tiles use "tilesGen.pl upload" (this is only called automatically
[6414]30in loop mode).

32
[5334]33== Stopping the client ==
[2516]34
[6414]35The client will stop automatically after completing its job, unless in "loop"
36mode. Loop mode can be exited cleanly simply by creating a file called
[5334]37"stopfile.txt" in the tilesAtHome directory. Upon encountering this file the
38client will exit after it completes it's current job.
39
[9997]40Running "tilesGen.pl stop" will do this for you.
