This is a guide for standing up a quick server using Yum on AWS Linux.
Other options for getting a server running are:
- Manual download and install, instructions can be found here
- There is a cloud formation template that Neo4J provide here
- AWS Linux EC2 instance. I used a T2.Medium but check here for suggested sizing.
- Security Group setup to allow incoming traffic on port 22 and 7474.
SSH onto the server the run the following commands
sudo sucd /tmpwget http://debian.neo4j.org/neotechnology.gpg.key
rpm --import neotechnology.gpg.keycat <<EOF> /etc/yum.repos.d/neo4j.repo
name=Neo4j Yum Repo
If you wish to install a certain version of Neo4J then run a command like the one below replace the version number as required
yum -y install neo4j-2.3.2
If you just want the latest version run the alternative below command instead
yum -y install neo4j
edit /etc/neo4j/neo4j-server.properties ( This is called neo4j.conf in version 3)
Remove the # from the line below in the file
Restart the service
service neo4j restart
To have this run as a service run these commands
chkconfig --add neo4j
chkconfig neo4j on
Log into Neo4J on http://<EC2 IP Address>:7474
The default username and password are neo4j/neo4j you will be prompted to change the password after the first login.
