I cannot understand how to backup my DBMS from Neo4j desktop.
The Operations Manual is very confusing
Here: Neo4j Admin - Operations Manual
Neo4j Admin is located in the bin directory and is invoked as:
But from where "invoke" the command?
And here: Back up an offline database - Operations Manual
"The command can be run only locally from an online or an offline Neo4j DBMS. "
" The target directory /dumps/neo4j must exist before running the command and the database must be offline."
These two sentences are on the same page!
Hi Koji, thank you so much for your help. Unfortunately it did not work.
My Neo4j Desktop version is 1.4.9.
In the terminal, you can write the dump command as follows.
Please modify <Backup Directory> and <File Name>.
If your Neo4j version is earlier than 4.0 you have to rewrite the database name from "--database=neo4j" to "--database=graph.db".
bin/neo4j-admin dump --database=neo4j --to=/<Backup Directory>/<File Name>.dump
