Can't start database - ChecksumMismatchException

Hi

I am using the Community Edition 4.2.6 using the official docker image. My server ran out of space yesterday which may have caused a database inconsistency. debug.log gives me the following:

I get a similar error when I run neo4j-admin check-consistency:

bin/neo4j-admin check-consistency --database=neo4j
Failure when checking for recovery state: java.io.IOException: org.neo4j.io.fs.ChecksumMismatchException: The checksum 1590744313 did not match the stored checksum of 0. At position LogPosition{logVersion=0, byteOffset=85888} and entry version 3

Any suggestions for how I can fix this?

@adi
try configuring unsupported.dbms.tx_log.fail_on_corrupted_log_files=false as part of neo4j.conf or as in docker/neo4j syntax and restart Neo4j.
This will basically parse out any corrupted transactions from the transaction log as a result of the disk full

Thanks! - That fixed it.

I am using neo4j v 4.3.2 and had the same problem with the same error message, but the configuration did not help after a restart. Any other suggestions?
