I'm updating Europe Database via nominatim from this post on my server.
Today is 12/20GB and It's 6th day of import so it's going very slow. In my apache & php I have to enable CURL extension so i need to restart apache. Is Nominatim using apache to update and index database ? When I will restart apache process that will cause nominatim update stop ?
I've never done this myself but the import should not require a running Apache instance as that would be a rather unfortunate approach. According to utils/update.php it calls
osm2pgsql directly. Thus, restarting Apache should be fine.
