All I said about 2.2.3, 2.2.4 and 2.2.5 seems to be is still valid for 2.2.6.

Kind regards,

Is it possible to ask for an upgrade to 2.2.6?

Thanks in advance,

mgd commented on 2015-08-28 12:51

Just tried this with 2.2.5 - works unchanged

mgd commented on 2015-08-27 07:57

FWIW I've taken the 2.2.1 patches and adjusted them for 2,2,3. These seem to work unchanged for 2.2.4. I have no idea if that is all that needs to be done. However on my system it seems to work...but then I'm only toying with it...

Only changes were to bin.patch and conf.patch. Since I can't add attachments to this comment and the patches are 10k in total size - anybody interested contact me directly and I'll send them.

Hope it helps somebody, regards

Thanks alot !

I did not see error messages regarding the number of files. Since I'm just starting to toy with neo4j I wasn't sure this was due to me not putting real load on the server...

Version 2.2.1-1 (soon enough, right?)

tucho commented on 2015-04-15 14:23

Here it is , folks. Sorry for the delay. And I know, we have 2.2.1 already. Coming soon...

@mgd: Thank you very much for your reports. Let me briefly explain what I did on those matters.

1) There is an undocumented property,, that tells Neo4j where to create the user auth data directory. I have put it in /etc/neo4j/ pointing to /var/lib/neo4j/data/dbms/auth, so that the owner is correctly set.

2) The max number of opened files was already been addressed by the systemd service declaration. Did you see any error messages on this?

Once again, thank you.

As an afterthought:
Some stuff from the neo4j manual, especially the bottom of the section "24.12 Linux Performance Guide" IMO should be mentioned during installation of the package.

Namely I mean these lines:

Edit /etc/security/limits.conf and add these two lines:

neo4j soft nofile 40000
neo4j hard nofile 40000

Edit /etc/pam.d/su and uncomment or add the following line:

session required

A restart is required for the settings to take effect.

Kind regards

I have tried to adjust the package file for 2.1.7 to 2.2.0.

With a few manual adjustments (some patches need manual tweaking) it worked and I could create a package that installed.

However upon starting the server it almost instantly crashes with an exception. The server tries to create an authstore under /usr/share/java/neo4j/data. /usr/share/java/neo4j is root:root 755 and thus the process owned by neo4j can't create that directory.

I assume the intention of the changed directory layout as of the ArchLinux package is that the above store should instead be created under /var/lib/neo4j (and then ./data) which is neo4j:neo4j 755 and thus would work.

I have no idea how to tell the neo4j server to use that other path instead.
I therefor manually created /usr/share/java/neo4j/data and made it neo4j:neo4j 755 and after that the server starts and seems to run w/o apparent issues.

Any ideas how to do this properly ?
