I am trying to run a docker instance of Neo4j using the "docker run" command, but it is giving the following error:

Bind for 0.0.0.0:7687 failed: port is already allocated Error: failed to start containers

How to fix this error?

If you are already running another docker instance of Neo4j, you need to stop or kill that instance before running a new one.

Here are the steps:

  • Run the following command on the terminal to get the list of containers currently running:

docker container ls

  • Find the container that is using port 7687. To stop it, run the following command on the terminal:

docker stop <CONTAINER ID>

  • To kill it, run the following command on the terminal:

docker rm -f <container-name>

Now you can run the new docker instance of Neo4j by running the "docker run" command.

If you also use the "docker ps" command to get the list of running containers.
