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

Hello guys,

it is possible to use only 1 database for a tile-server (mod_tile) and nominatim? Or I need to create a seperate one for the nominatim-search?

thanks in advance

You will currently need two database instances (which naturally can be created in the same "database" you will likely have to change the default name of one of them).

PS: this only makes sense if we are talking about a small extract of OSM data and yes some of the information is duplicate in such a setup.

Is it still valid in 2018? Why can't both services use the same schema in DB? What data is different and what is duplicated?

Major parts of the database schema are different (as the use case is very different).
