$NEO4J_HOME is /var/lib/neo4j

  • April 03, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Everything installs fine but took me five minutes of searching to find that the import directory is /var/lib/neo4j/import. Hopefully this review saves you five minutes if you are looking to do local file CSV import. This information should likely be somewhere in the docs along with the other comment that graciously described that the password is the EC2 instance ID.


The shell script has an error

  • June 14, 2019

In the file /etc/neo4j/
the script has an error and should be like this:


if [ $? -ne 0 || "$EXTERNAL_IP_ADDR" = "" ] ; then
echo " Advertising internal IP since instance lacks external public IP"

Fixed version

if [[ $? -ne 0 || "$EXTERNAL_IP_ADDR" = "" ] ]; then
echo " Advertising internal IP since instance lacks external public IP"

missing brackets.


Default password after starting neo4j browser

The default password for connecting is your aws instance id. Suprised that this is not mentioned in the Usage Instructions


Review for the Neo4j graph database

  • March 03, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I liked that neo4j offers a good interface for easily creating graph databases on top of existing nosql solutions .
What do you dislike?
I didn't like the limitations imposed by neo4j, sometimes it can get difficult to form the relationships one wants because there are pretermined limitations .
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used neo4j to model our readmissions services ,as they were a better for for graph databases than for mysql databases, and we could glean a lot of information from it .
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I would suggest trying neo4j as a proof of concept on part of your data and go live if it works well.


Outstanding... !!!

Easy to install. Support is fantastic. State of the Art back-end solution. Documentation is extensive and may need sequential order, especially on Google SERP.


No success

I spent almost a day trying to get that thing running. Be sure to create a new Security Group according to seller's recommendation to open the required ports.
Anyhow, I managed to access the database and write and read soma data via browser. But it would not support HTTPS and i got a lot of error messages and warnings. I gave up.

Very little trouble shooting support, not a point and click Start up App

  • July 30, 2018

The AMI provided does not start up and go as offered, very little support from Neo4j to get it started.

Product definitely needs to be worked on for trouble shooting. Wasted half a day to learn every way not to get a graph going on EC2.

When running the script error get thrown in the "automatic" building of neo4j.conf file.

Someone needs to make a better AMI for Neo4j to make it more accessible on EC2 instances.

Neo4j very good on the support, heaps of info on their site & this image is perfect. Super easy way to get into Graph DBs.
I recommend also trying the free hosted "sandbox" instances on their site, they're preloaded with interesting data & walk you through them, and no hosting fees
