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


We are getting the following error while importing OSM data during the installation of Nominatim on Centos 6.6 cPanel server:


./utils/setup.php --osm-file india-latest.osm.pbf --all --osm2pgsql-cache 18000

Create DB
Strict Standards: Non-static method PEAR::isError() should not be called statically in /home/fleetlink/public_html/Nominatim/utils/setup.php on line 96
Password: createdb: database creation failed: ERROR: permission denied to create database Error executing external command: createdb -E UTF-8 -p 5432 nominatim --

Can any one please let us know how to resolve?

Thank you.

Are you sure you followed the instructions correctly, particularly

Creating the importer account

The import needs to be done with a postgres superuser with the same name as the account doing the import. You can create such a postgres superuser account by running:

sudo -u postgres createuser -s [your user name]
