Problem with installing APOC in neo4j server

joannelyu
Node Link

Hello,

My apoc plugin is not correctly installed, but I really don't know what went wrong.

  • OS: CentOS 7
  • neo4j version: 4.4.1
  • API / driver: Neo4j GraphQL Library

Jar file under plugins folder: /var/lib/neo4j/plugins/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 neo4j neo4j 23302562 Dec 9 19:06 apoc-4.4.0.1-all.jar
In config file: /etc/neo4j/neo4j.conf

dbms.security.procedures.unrestricted=apoc.*
dbms.security.procedures.allowlist=apoc.coll.*,apoc.load.*,apoc.*
apoc.import.file.enabled=true

When I run:

neo4j@neo4j> call apoc.help("help");
Failed to invoke procedure `apoc.help`: Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.neo4j.graphdb.TransactionGuardException

When I call some Neo4j GraphQL APIs, I get:
Unhandled Rejection (Error): Unknown function 'apoc.util.validatePredicate'

Neo4j has been restarted many times.

Please help, Thanks!

Regards,
Joanne

@joannelyu

There is something useful in neo4j.log and debug.log files?

The config seems correct (anyway, in dbms.security.procedures.allowlist you can write only apoc.*, but the result is the same)

Dear @giuseppe.villani

Here is some part of the log:

It seems the apoc jar file is loaded, but call apoc still not working. There is an error of lock file, but not about apoc I guess.

Thanks!
