Hi, From Google, I understand that to create an interface same as https://www.openstreetmap.org, where User can search for location, I will need to use nominatim. I am reading bellow link, http://nominatim.org/release-docs/latest/appendix/Install-on-Ubuntu-16/

I understand i will need to install a new server, but what I dont understand is, how will create relation between my existing tiles server and this new nominatim server ? how nomatiam will know from where to find tiles infomration ( /var/lib/mod_tile/ajt/ in )


Here, i am just working with one country. I guess i can build nominatim in the same server where i have the files, but still i have the same qustion , how will nominatim know from where to get teh tiles information ? is this from this section , what Path its looking for ? the tiles path ?

@define('CONST_Osm2pgsql_Flatnode_File', '/path/to/flatnode.file');

My tiles configurtion:

Localserver for tiles :
web access :
file system location : /var/lib/mod_tile/ajt/

Thanks for the help.

Nominatim and tiles are separate technologies/projects. You can install them on the same server, but Nominatim will build its own database (called 'nominatim') and not share any data with your tile service. Nominatim has its own update scripts for the database.
