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

I installed an Ubuntu server with OSM which has been used with our applications for 2 years.

And now, I would like to install Nominatim. I found the following link https://nominatim.org/release-docs/latest/appendix/Install-on-Ubuntu-18/ to proceed. But, of course, I have to install all the necessary OSM data.

So, I will obtain 2 databases, one for OSM, one for Nominatim. Which is really heavy.

My question is very simple, is it possible to install Nominatim on the same server as OSM and use the same database ? If yes, how can I do that ? I didn't find any howto !

Thx for your help

There is not. Nominatim has it's own table schema and update script and most data will be dupliated.
