I'm setting up a new LJ site. I followed the instructions here and when I run bin/upgrading/texttool.pl load it recognizes the en_LOCAL.dat file. I then changed some of the text definitions in en_LOCAL.dat, as well as adding some new ones. The text never changes, and the new text never shows up. I tried running update-db.pl -p -r -fb which chugged for a while and didn't complain, but still no luck. Rebooting didn't help either.
It seems pretty clear to me that these text items are in the database somewhere, but I've searched every table using phpMyAdmin's handy search feature and didn't find them.
To be specific, I'm starting with something simple, namely changing the words "User Information" to "Profile" on the userinfo page. I also modified the text that says, "Below is user information for...." Thanks for any suggestions.
