When running Enable-SPFeature, you may get the weird error:

“Enable-SPFeature : The file is currently checked out or locked for editing by another user.”

 

One possible cause of this issue could be that some file(s) the are deployed by the feature could be checked out by a user.

Checking the ULS logs you could find something like

 

Instantiating module “NAMEOFMODULE”: File could not be added at URL “FILENAME.jpg: Error 689225296 99e77593-d0d4-49df-adcc-c8f8251fbb82

Here is a simple script to create the site structure for SharePoint Online based on a csv file.

The script is using the Client-side SharePoint PowerShell project from Codeplex (https://sharepointpowershell.codeplex.com/ ).

 

In order to create the site structure just fill the csv file of the following format

Url,Name,Template,Description,Language
Blog,Blog,BLOG#0,Blog,1033
Subsite1, SubSite1, STS#0, Name1, 1033
SubSite1/Subsite11, Name11, STS#0, Description, 1033
SubSite1/Subsite11/Subsite1111, Name3, STS#0, Description, 1033

 

And then use the following script

 

Import-Module "$PSScriptRoot\spps.psm1"
Import-Module "$PSScriptRoot\spps.subsites.psm1"
Import-Module "$PSScriptRoot\ConfigCredentials.ps1"

Initialize-SPPS -siteURL $O365SiteUrl -isOnline $true -onlineusername $username -onlinepassword $password

Import-Csv $PSScriptRoot\SiteStructure.csv  | ForEach-Object{

    $name = $_.Name
    $template = $_.Template
    $description = $_.Description
    $lang = $_.Language
   
    Write-Host "Processing " $name " "  $_.Url
    Open-Rootsite
   
    $relUrl = ""   
    foreach($subsite in $_.Url -split "/")
    {
        $relUrl += "/"+ $subsite
        try
        {
            Open-Subsite -relativeUrl $relUrl
            Write-Host "Site" [$relUrl] "Already exists"
        }
        catch
        {
            Write-Host "Trying to create" $subsite
            Add-Subsite -title $name -url $subsite -webTemplate $template -language $lang -description $description
        }
    }
    Write-Host " ———————– "
}

 

Note, the Script ConfigCredentials.ps1 is used to store the Site Url and the credentials as follows

$O365SiteUrl = “https://url_here
$username = username@domain.com
$password = "password"

 

Note: to make sure the script behaves as expected, make sure that the hierarchy in the csv file is in order. i.e.

Subsite1
Subsite1/Subsite2

in other words do no list the sub site before its parent site.
