I'm trying to lookup like this: https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?format=json&city=calgary&state=alberta&country=canada

string(19) "pgsql://@/nominatim"
object(DB_Error)#2 (8) {
 string(0) ""
 string(24) "DB Error: connect failed"
 string(272) " [nativecode=pg_connect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
   Is the server running locally and accepting
   connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432"?] ** pgsql://@/nominatim"

The server that does the name searches is currently broken. Admins are aware of it and will fix the problem. A first port of call for when things don't work is http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Platform_Status which will often tell you about known issues, or check on IRC whether the problem is there for everyone or just you.
