Installing APOC's

Hello - Sometime back I installed Neo4j 4.2.2-1 on the Linux system. Can anyone suggest to me how to install the APOC plugins (apoc.text.lpad) on Linux?

As I mentioned I have Neo4j 4.2.2-1 and the link you provided doesn't have that version specified for binaries. I read somewhere about the procedures that it all matters is the first two digits which is 4.2.x.x.x and the rest is negligible when choosing binaries and hence I choose the closest one 4.2.0.
When I did this, Neo4j was not able to start.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or supposed to look at?


correct. Choose the APOC vX.Y where X.Y is the same as Neo4j vX.Y

As to not starting look to logs/debug.log or logs/neo4j.log

Hello Dana Canzano,
Agree and hence I choose Release · neo4j-contrib/neo4j-apoc-procedures · GitHub which is close to my version
Any suggestions?


as per my prior update, if neo4j is not starting then there should be some detail in logs/neo4j.log or logs/debug.log to explain the failure
