Locked Database

    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.

    Why is it locked? Is there a connection opened by your code that would keep
    it locked,
    (assuming when no other users are in the database.)
