RabbitMQ setup on Ubuntu

In my past enterprise experience, I’ve worked a lot with IBM WebSphere MQ, as I’ve evolved to open source, I’ve found RabbitMQ to fill my messaging needs as an implementation of AMPQ. While I’ve added Ubuntu installation instructions here, server and API implementations are available for most programming languages and operating systems.


sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server


sudo wget http://www.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-signing-key-public.asc

sudo apt-key add rabbitmq-signing-key-public.asc

sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rabbit.list

NOTE: this file will probably be empty, just add the following line (for Ubuntu 11.04 and earlier)

deb http://www.rabbitmq.com/debian/ testing main

sudo apt-get update
sudo aptitude install rabbitmq-server
