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

I've installed an overpass server locally (following this guide) and everything is working, but very rarely there's differences between the public server and my local one. So far this has exclusively been queries involving areas, with some areas just not existing on my local server while they do exist on the public one.

As an example, the following query gives lots of results on https://overpass-turbo.eu/ with //overpass-api.de/api/ as the server, but running the same query on my local server gives nothing (because that area does not exist for me).

out tags;

I don't know why this would be happening, any ideas on the cause / how to fix it?

The most recent changeset for that relation (21 days ago) indicates that it and some other relations had been in a broken state. Depending on the state of it at the time you downloaded the data, it may not have properly imported into your database. You could try updating your data to see if Overpass then creates the area as expected, now that the relation has been fixed.

I think this was the problem. I updated my data and some of the problem cases went away (not all of them though :/). Thanks!
