Installation Notes

  • It is strongly recommended to upgrade to ArangoDB 3.6.x, and change the storage engine to the RocksDB engine if you are currently using the MMFiles engine. See Upgrading MMFiles to RocksDB in ArangoDB. Support for ArangoDB 3.5.x and lower will be dropped in upcoming versions, and upgrading from MMFiles to RocksDB can greatly improve database stability and performance.
  • The "full" user will have the super user permission automatically added after running the deployment script.
