Issue:

Logs end at:

Caused by: io.netty.channel.unix.Errors$NativeIoException: bind(..) failed: Address already in use

Things I've tried:

  • Killing all processes associated with neo4j
  • searching for default port lsof :11005/6
  • reinstalling
    • some config files you don't seem to be able to delete in .config

which OS do you use? use tags for that information

  • Linux pop-os 5.4.0-7634-generic #38~1596560323~20.04~7719dbd-Ubuntu SMP Tue Aug 4 19:12:34 UTC 2 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

There was a lot of address already in use going on here, so it was kind of hard to parse, but this bit in the debug log turned out to be the important part:

$ kill 530156

Looks like desktop leaves some java runnin' out in the fields there...

After that DB startup was all good.

BTW: if you have trouble finding the debug.log click on the neo4j.log link in manage and it should open the container folder for the logs

Somewhere around here:
