I have a private Nominatim installation. If I pass extratags=1 as a part of my reverse geocoding query nothing is returned. I have checked that the values exist in the placex table and they are being returned on the details.php page. Any further troubleshooting suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I'm running postgres v9.3 and Nominatim v2.5.1

I figured it out, it was a problem with the Apache VirtualHost actually pointing to the old site. After enabling NameVirtualHost all is well, thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. So it was not a Nominatim-related problem at all, right? Is it like this: You were essentially querying the wrong Nominatim instance?

No it wasn't...correct, I was still hitting 2.4.0.

for the interested people some background: Ah, I see, "extratags" is a new (2.4 to current version 2.5) feature ("new namedetails and extratags parameters that expose the name and extratags fields of the placex table") of Nominatim.

Hmm, it should work like this http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse.php?format=json&lat=51&lon=11&extratags=1

Can you share the request URL and the response you get returned? Of course strip your domain name or any other personal information.
