Why does this Australian address always raise a 500 error?

This South Wales address always raises a 500 error. Anyone has an idea why this is or if its a bug that needs fixing?


The SQL for the query was too slow, so it timed out consistently on some of the servers. I’ve pushed a temporary fix.

See here.

For me, right now, it works.
Maybe there was a bug and it is fixed.

Weird! For me it still gives a 500.

% curl -i "https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=Sydney%2C+New+South+Wales+AU&format=jsonv2&addressdetails=1&limit=1"
HTTP/2 500

{"title": "500 Internal Server Error"}%

Same Problem “500 Internal Server Error” from Munich, Germany for the original query.


is OK

Is OK as well, omitting the “+AU” in the query
