Dreamweaver: diabling checkin/checkout warning messages

Posted on 2007-07-31

A number of people collaborated on a website and the work is done. We used Dreamweaver's file check-in and check-out function to make sure we were all in synch. A few of the people who worked on the site are now unreachable yet it seems that the server still shows that there are files checked out by them.

Every time I try to update a file I get the same message warning me that files are checked out by so-and-so. (I have file checkin/checkout feature disabled by the way within the site definition area)  

My question is: how to I permanently override the other person's check-out? Is there a file on the server which controls the checkout information? At this point it is only me working on the website so having those warnings is really annoying.

Thanks in advance!

>> Is there a file on the server which controls the checkout information?

Yes.  The files will be named page.extension.LCK and they are not hidden in any way.  Deleting those files will remove the checkout information.

For example, the lock file for index.html would be index.html.LCK

Many thanks! That did the trick.
