Ubu: 4. Start Graphlytic

Graphlytic depends on Neo4j so if you want to start Neo4j and/or Graphlytic manually you have to start Neo4j first and Graphlytic next (after Neo4j is successfully started).

Start Neo4j

How to start Neo4j see the Neo4j installation manual. It is strictly recommended to follow instructions in the Neo4j manual. Here is a short description of how to start Neo4j but use this description with care.

Start Neo4j as a console application

Description of how to start Neo4j on-demand as a console application (not as a service).

Go into directory <NEO4J_HOME>/bin and execute the start script.

$ sudo su neo4j
neo4j:$ cd /usr/share/neo4j/neo4j-community-3.0.0/bin
neo4j:$ nohup ./neo4j console &

Check in the log file if Neo4j was started successfully:

$ less /usr/share/neo4j/neo4j-community-3.0.0/bin/nohup

If Neo4j was started successfully log file contains a line similar to this one:

Remote interface ready and available at http://localhost:7474/

Change password for Neo4j at first start

The default password to neo4j has to be changed for security reasons. This step is required but only once. Change the password if you started Neo4j for the first time.

Start Graphlytic

Go into Graphlytic home directory

$ sudo su graphlytic
graphlytic:$ cd /usr/share/graphlytic/bin
graphlytic:$ nohup ./graphlyticc &

Check in the log file if Graphlytic was started successfully. There should be no error in the log file:

$ less /var/log/graphlytic/graphlytic.log
