Hi Richard,

i'm working on getting an installation of overpass working
against OpenHistoricalMap, and i'm looking for pointers on
how to debug some issues i'm having.

Thank you for the feedback.

The query is answered by the script

The error is deteced by that

REQUEST_FILE=`mktemp /tmp/translate_xapi/XXXXXX`
$BIN_DIR/translate_xapi "${BUF}" >$REQUEST_FILE

returns a nonzero value, i.e.

echo $?

immediately after these commands return a nonzero value.

Please try

- whether the script works locally, i.e.

export QUERY_STRING="way..."

also produces the error.

- whether the individual commands

mktemp /tmp/translate_xapi/XXXXXX

(the XXX do not need to be replaced)


../bin/translate_xapi "way..."

work properly and $REQUEST_FILE is acessible for writing.

Best regards,
