flock not working on UNIX
I just spent several hours installing DBMan on an Apache server running on UNIX (Sun Solaris 4), but it only seems to work if I turn file locking off by editing db.cgi.

With locking turned on I get UNABLE TO OBTAIN EXCLUSIVE LOCK ON DEFAULT.DB as an error message when I try to add, delete, or modify records.

Is my service provider to blame (a non-standard implementation of Apache?) or is there anything I can do to get around this problem (other than just turning flock off)?

I would check with your ISP. I've never seen anyone else with a problem with flock on a Unix system.
