I have a website that uses a backend MS Access database. Everything works fine for the users the only problem is that the database becomes locked and there is an associated lock file of dbname.lbd. Normally this is fine but there are times when we would like to delete and replace the db file. The only way I have found to get past this problem is to reboot our live web-server which is not a good idea. After a reboot I am able to do whatever I need to. How can I unlock the db and replace it without a reboot? Any suggestion are greatly appreciated.
