12== Getting Started ==
13
14To use this copy the config template related to your OS to tilesAtHome.conf,
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.

20== Running the client ==
21
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
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
29To upload tiles use "tilesGen.pl upload" (this is only called automatically
30in loop mode).
31
32
33== Stopping the client ==
34
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
37"stopfile.txt" in the tilesAtHome directory. Upon encountering this file the
38client will exit after it completes it's current job.
39
40Running "tilesGen.pl stop" will do this for you.
