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


I followed these instructions to install Nominatim on a local server: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Installation

  • I used the stable version 2.4.0
  • I added the optional data from Wikipedia and Postcodes
  • added the special phrases after the import was done

The planet import was done after 3 days and most queries return results. However for some addresses I get no results at all. The official Nominatim server returns results for the same addresses. What is wrong with my server? How can I get the same results as the official Nominatim server? Did I miss something in the import?

Here are some examples:

I checked if the place is in my database with the osmid http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details?osmid=52517028&osmtype=W & both have the place. So it should be there, right? But on my server the geocoder gives no results.
