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

Hi, I have installed a docker image of the overpass api server as explained here. Instead of providing data for the whole world, I configured the image to use a osm.bz2 file containing only my area of interest. Now I have reached the point where at least one query is being answered as expected, while all other get the following response:

  "version": 0.6,
  "generator": "Overpass API",
  "osm3s": {
    "timestamp_osm_base": "2017-10-24T07:01:02Z",
    "copyright": "The data included in this document is from www.openstreetmap.org. The data is made available under ODbL."
  "elements": [

"remark": "runtime error: Query failed with the exception: LZ4_decompress_safe failed"

any suggestion on what is going on here? Is there any fix you are aware of? Thank you in advance.
