Password issues with Neo4J (+ Django and Neomodel)

I intend to create a project with Neo4J and Django through Neomodel. I have downloaded and installed all the required software on my computer. I however encounter 2 main problems with Neo4J :

  1. I don’t understand how to use alternatively or together (knowing I code in Django):

a. the desktop browser

b. the http://localhost:7474/browser/

c. a browser more linked to to display a first set of nodes created with Django and Neomodel

  1. Anyway, there is an issue because of the password with any of them

a. the desktop browser → « Database failed to create: Error: Could not change password »

b. the http://localhost:7474/browser/ → I could connect to it after uncommenting : in the « README.txt »corresponding to the configuration file : neo4j.conf

c. the browser at → Expecting url format: bolt://user:password@localhost:7687 got ...j@localhost:7687

resulting from different attempts in in the field NEOMODEL_NEO4J_BOLT_URL = ...

I have read a lot of posts about the topic but could not find any solution.

Some of the issues previously encountered have been solved, but the following statement:

neomodel_install_labels myapp/ myapp/ --db bolt://neo4j:password@localhost:7687

rreturns at the bottom of the list:

File "/home/simplon/anaconda3/lib/python3.7/", line 1139, in do_handshake


OSError: [Errno 0] Error

Has somebody got an idea about this ?

I've the same issue.. can anyone help out?

Hi, I don't have time to dig the topic any more now because I switched to MySQL, but I think there's a Neo4J version problem and that at least one needs to install the latest one
