Nominatim to tile server


I got a nominatim database already set up, but I’d like to have a tile server, too. However, it’s missing planet_osm_line, planet_osm_polygon and such tables.

Can these tables be constructed from the nominatim database, or will I really have to re-import whole North America? (It took 2days with wiki and tiger 2017…)
Or can a tile server instantly use a nominatim database? Or is the procedure different and I should import into gis database, too?

This is what I have been following:
The install is a fresh install to C7 according to OSM site.

Best regards,

Both are using the OSM data but in different database layouts (styles).

check the “style” option of osm2pgsql.

You have to create a second database.
