Unable to run neo4j at Fedora 34

I have installed Neo4j-enterprise in my Linux machine, running Fedora 34. As I issued the command
neo4j start
I got this error:
Unable to start. See user log for details.
org.neo4j.server.startup.BootFailureException: Failure to create the user log file /var/log/neo4j/neo4j.log due to /var/log/neo4j/neo4j.log
Java version is:
java --version
openjdk 11.0.13 2021-10-19
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.13+8)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.13+8, mixed mode, sharing)
What should be done?

Goodevening,
For me I use the rpm repo from neo4j.
Iam not sure if that is a option for your setup.

The working setup for me is: enable the neo4j repo. Then run: sudo dnf update. Then run: sudo install neo4j-enterprise. And then run: sudo systemctl start neo4j.

Yours Kindly Omer
