Upgrade a DBMS

You can upgrade your DBMSs directly in Desktop, provided that they are local (for remote DBMSs, see the Upgrade and Migration guide). All currently supported versions of Neo4j can be run by Desktop and upgrades can be performed between them.

It is not possible to upgrade a 4.x DBMS directly to 5 in Desktop. Please see the Migration Guide → Supported upgrade and migration paths for more information.

To upgrade a DBMS, click the Upgrade-tab in the right-hand pane and select which version you wish to upgrade to. If available, the release notes for the selected version are shown. Once you click Upgrade, interactive and informative dialog-boxes guide you through the process.
