One of the major changes in Neo4j 3.0 was the reworking of configuration files and the individual configuration setting naming convention to make it more consitent and managable going forward. A config-migrator tool is supplied in Neo4j 3.0 to assist in automating this. However, for some users, this is not an option or not ideal. For those users, the following reference table lists the previous configuration setting name, the new name, and the resulting change from the pre-3.0 setting.

Note that the configuration files conf/neo4j.properties and conf/neo4j-server.properties were merged into a single conf/neo4j.conf in Neo4j 3.0. Configuration setting names in conf/neo4j-wrapper.conf were also changed, but most remain in that same configuration file (which is being merged into neo4j.conf in Neo4j 3.1).
