Hi all

I have imported the Europe dataset in PostgreSQL with osm2pgsql, and I apply daily updates with a routine every night. Looking at the logs I keep, I believe one of the daily updates was not correctly applied. I was thinking about simply re-playing those updates (edit : all the daily updates since the failure, of course). Would this work ? From what I understand of the way osm2pgsql works it basically does inserts and deletes, so I'd say this could work, but I'd rather be sure.

Thanks for your help on this !

osm2pgsql's update process is safe to replay. That means you can repeat updates provided you reapply all updates from the date that the update process failed and you apply them in the correct order. The database is only back to a consistent state when all updates have been processed.
