Log files

If something goes wrong, the logs are a good place to start. The neo4j.log for each DBMS can be accessed directly from Desktop and opens in a separate window, which allows you to keep it in the background. This is the standard log and contains general information about Neo4j. Please see Operations Manual → Logging for more information about other Neo4j log files. Desktop has its own log as well, with information about the application. The Desktop log file can be found here:

~/Library/Logs/Neo4j Desktop/main.log
~/.config/Neo4j Desktop/Application/log.log

Windows before 1.0.19:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Neo4j Desktop\log.log

Windows after 1.0.19:

%USERPROFILE%\.Neo4jDesktop\ (or any other user defined path)
