Hi,

I am running a CF 5 server in Win 2000 Server SP2. I have recently started using dsnless connections to link to access databases for my websites. The problem I am having is that once a dsnless website is open, it opens the related access database, and never closes it. The lockfile remains there until the server reboots, even if the website is not being used for days/weeks. I can't delete the lockfile either. Does anyone know how I can either stop this from happening, or remove the lockfile.

I got the answer elsewhere. I just need to run this to flush out the database connections. The only problem is it flushes all databases connections so it shouldn't be done too often

This should be run in a cfm page on the server.

<cfscript>cfusion_dbconnections_flush();</cfscript>

i think that you can break the connection by running a bad query:

<cftry>
<cfquery ..etc..>
   select some_junk from non_exist_table
</cfquery>

<cfcatch type=any>
  <!--- DB RELEASED --->
</cfcatch>
</cftry>

maybe?

cheers.
