How linked to version number are the graph.db files


(Doug) #1

I'm using Neo4j 3.3.1 on my Linux machine, but have a 3.4.7 database on my Windows machine.

I can't upgrade my Linux machine at the moment, but would like the database from the Windows machine on my Linux machine.

So my question is, can I just copy the graph.db folder to my linux machine and point Neo4j at it, or are these files tied to the version therefore causing this "downgrade" would fail?

Thanks!

Downgrades are generally not supported. Best option is to install 3.4.7 on Linux as well and then use the graph from your Windows box.

Another (advanced) option is using https://github.com/jexp/store-utils - this allows you to perform offline copies between versions.
