Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I am trying to import an .osm file to my postgres database but I keep getting the following error: Files was unexpected at this time.

Command I used to import the file: osmosis --read-xml file="D:\Licenta\Romania OSM\romania.osm" --write-apidb host="localhost:5432" database="romania" user="postgres" password="mypostgrespassword"

Any idea why I am getting this error?

Thank you

I solved this problem by setting the correct path to java.exe. You can do this by editing osmosis.bat in bin directory and setting JAVACMD to the correct path. This worked for me.
