I am newbie to osm/nominatim. I set up everything correctly and loaded Florida pbf data and geocode /searches were working fine. Today I added data for Mississipi using the setup.php script with --import option and looks like the data got loaded with no errors. However I am not able to geocode any of the mississipi addresses. The old Florida addresses still geocode fine. What am I missing? What should I do after loading new osm states data? I must be missing a simple step. I am happy to post additional information as needed.
A quick internet search for "nominatim add new country" shows several hits that lead finally to help.osm.org with this question:
Please tell us about success or failure.
In case that you already followed exactly this instruction, examine your import log files.
