Please can someone advise how to unlock my family tree database from the Command line?

Is there some reason that you haven’t updated to the latest version of Gramps (5.1.3)?

Assuming you installed Gramps from the official .dmg installer, @prculley 's advice needs to be modified a little. The unlock command would be

/Applications/Gramps.app/Contents/MacOS/Gramps -O "Family Tree 1" -a report -u > /dev/null


Since the 5.1.4 release is imminent, I opted to not suggest a 5.1.3 update. He’d just have to update again. (Although many users wait for a couple weeks after release & let others volunteer to be the cannon fodder. Personally, my hometown had 2 of the largest pyrotechnics makers in the US. So I love fireworks!)

Thanks All. My family tree is unlocked. I’ll upgrade to 5.1.4 when its released.
