I've installed Nominatim on a local server of ours, and it seems to work fine, except for one minor (major for me unfortunatly) problem. It is not returning the different naming of a specific location, on different languages.

For example, let's take this query:

This query returns a json array, with a "namedetails" parameter, containing the different names on different languages. When I make the same query, on my own nominatim installation, it returns the same data, but with no namedetails parameter. otherwise, the data matches on both queries. Any ideas what could be the problem?

namedetails were introduced in Nominatim version 2.5.0, released February 2016. I see you asked your first question "How to use address lookup when nominatim is installed on own server" on Feb/21st. It is possible you still run version 2.4.0?

No, I've already installed the 2.5.0 version, but I think I know what the problem is. It seems that to get the namedetails, I would need PostgreSQL 9.3 at least, and with my base CentOS installation, only PostgreSQL 9.2 came:| Now I am trying to figure out a way, to upgrade my PostgreSQL without having to redo the whole Nominatim installation from the start, cause it took quite long time to finish(2 weeks). Any ideas on a possible solution with PostgreSQL 9.2.15?
