Rsync and files which are in use

I have a problem when I use rsync version 2.5.6  protocol version 26 to copy
files from one server to another.
It doesn't seem to copy all files. As far as i can tell it doesn't copy
files which are in use at that time. 
Since among other things i am rsyncing web pages some are always in use.

I use rsync -a to copy them over.

Is it possible to copy files which are open/in use?
