I'm no DB admin but I'll give it a shot. It's a protocol gauranteed to allow serialized actions on a database by having a locking phase and an unlocking phase. Meaning, during locking, no other transactions may be performed on the database until it is unlocked.

Not sure of the particular terminology but 2 phase locking I believe would be similar to 2 phase commit where you must first make sure that everybody involved is ready, able, and willing (phase 1) then the next phase is when it actually happens (phase 2).
