How to refresh database in Joomla!

ehtan

I changed an article title in Joomla!, but it keeps reverting back to the old title. I'm wondering if I need to refresh the database to get rid of it, and if so, how do I do that?

It's kinda hidden under your menu. It is in the extension manager. Click that tab and it will open up a large dialog box where you will see a "database" tab. Click on database, then just click the "fix" button on the top right side of that box (it looks like a circle/arrow recycle thingy). That should do it.
