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


Please I am currently working on an OSM project, which basically involves extracting points of interests and aligning them to the points (nodes) on the streets. My code is written in python using overpy. I am interfacing my project with others that require my code to produce response within 5 seconds, but most times due to OSM server load, my code takes far longer. Because of this performance issue, I'm considering hosting an OpenStreetMap server for this project. So what are the processes and the requirements to get this done because I'm totally novice about this.

Thank you

The term "OpenStreetMap server" can mean many things. From your mention of "overpy" I guess that you might want an "Overpass" server. Instructions for installing such a server can be found on https://overpass-api.de/.
