I can't FTP .mdb file

Whenever I try to ftp the file I get a message that the "file may not exist or there could be a permission problem". In the past after updating info on the database, closing it, then trying to upload the file I'd get the same message.  I'd reboot, and it would be fine. I always thought it was because Dreamweaver thought Access was still using the file.  Now when I open Dreamweaver and hit the upload button it automatically creates a .ldb file. I don't remeber it doing that before, but it may have. It seems like since I haven't opened the DB and I'm only FTPing it, it shouldn't create the .ldb file. I don't know if this matters but the .mdb file is in a wwwroot subdirectory, somebody else thought that might have something to do with it.
Any Ideas?

The .ldb file is "lock" and user information for your database. It should be gone by itself if your DB is working correctly.

If you are coying over a file, you must make sure it is not in use. I'm not sure if you need to close it before coying but better make sure, and the "destination" file should not be in use, I'm guessing thats the job of the .ldb file, to lock the DB so you can copy over it.

Try deleting the .ldb file before uploading.

Also, did you change any permissions to the destination folder or file?

Check this link for further reading on .ldb files.

The .ldb file doesn't exist until I hit the upload button, when I hit the button I can watch it appear in the File window in Dreamweaver. The file isn't open when I try to upload, and I haven't changed any permissions. I have two sites with two seperate databases and they both are having the same problem.

I just removed Dreamweaver, reinstalled, and it works. Does that mean I get the points? Thank you for your help though.
