You need server-side software to open the MBTiles file and fetch the
tiles. TileStache and TileStream are two popular servers for doing this.
TileStache is Python and I found it fairly easy to set up. It runs under
Apache as CGI, mod_python, or WSGI. If you have an existing web server
and web content, this is probably the easiest way to go.
TileStream is written in Node JS and takes a bit more setup. It does not
run under Apache, but is its own server with its own service port and it
has some behaviors regarding the hostname of incoming requests --
running it on port 80 with your other web content is not simple.
