For users of Graphenedb who want to migrate their database to Aura the process is straightforward.
- Install Neo4j Desktop on your laptop or desktop.
- Create a database to handle the import (you won't need it after but it should be a new database you can safely overwrite). It should be the same major+minor version of the Graphenedb, to make sure the libraries are compatible.
- Make a note of the install directory of this database, you'll install the source snapshot here later.
- In your Graphenedb console, click on the Backups tab and download a snapshot (if none are available click the "Take snapshot now" button).
- Save the resulting tar.gz file to the root of the install directory for the local database you created earlier.
- Open a terminal window in your local database's root directory and run (on Linux or Mac):
tar zxf <snapshotfile>On Windows10 open a Command Prompt and cd to the database's root then run:
rm -rf data/*
mv graph.db/* data/
tar zxf <snapshotfile>
rmdir /s data\*
move graph.db\* data\
- In your Aura console click the Import tab at the top of the console.
- Follow the instructions to install the push-to-cloud plugin on your laptop or desktop, if necessary, into your local import database.
- Once this is all prepared, run the push-to-cloud following the instructions in the guide from step 5 to push your database to Aura.
That's it, you should now be able to make use of your Graphenedb data in Aura and take advantage of Aura's causal consistency, seamless upgrades, and world-class support from the Neo4j team.
