Cannot start a DBMS

In case starting a DBMS takes longer than 60 seconds, Desktop may show a timeout message even though the DBMS has actually started. To show the actual state, you can refresh Desktop (ctrl+r alternatively cmd+r).

For other issues related to starting a DBMS, you can find more information in the neo4j.log or the debug.log files in the DBMS folder. As mentioned above, the neo4j.log file is also accessible from the More Options dropdown menu for the DBMS in question.
