When things break

During Pootle development databases can get into unusable states, searching indexes can be corrupted, … This page lists places to look for when things are broken.

Automatically generated Pootle files

Pootle indexes each language in every project if PyLucene or Xapian are available.

The indices are stored under .translation_index under a language directory (for example pootle/eu/.translation_index). Corrupt indices might cause problems. Deleting the .translation_index directories will cause Pootle to regenerate the indices.

Also have a look at the files generated by the Translate Toolkit.

Since Pootle 2.0, you can also check the dbs/ directory (and your database if you are using one) to entirely delete things you are working on if you want to start cleanly.
