This happens because you deleted the messages / topics / forums by hand. JForum does a lot of cache, so this explains the need for restarting tomcat. If you were deleting the messages / forums using the Administration / Moderatio interface, this will not happen.

I am testing the forum running on my computer. The specs are JForum Rc4 with Tomcat 4.1 (stable ver.), Connection/J 3.0 (stable ver.).
First, I populated the forum with categories/topics/posts/users.
Secondly, I delete and recreate the forum database, and populate with default values.
Then I point my browser to http://localhost:8080/jforum again, but I see categories/topics/users that should not be there as I have already deleted them at step 2. Clearing cookies and closing/reopening browser didn't help. If I click on them, there will be error messages.
After doing some testing, I found that the only way is to restart Tomcat.
I don't expect a need to delete and recreate the database after deployment. Just asking if there is a way to solve this problem?
Sorry, I am doing lots of testing now.
Thanks and Regards,
