rabbitmq basics

A quick guide to some basics of running a RabbitMQ server:

Start the service:
service rabbitmq-server start

Remove the default ‘guest’ user:
rabbitmqctl delete_user guest

Set up a new user for administrative purposes:
rabbitmqctl add_user <admin_user> <password>
rabbitmqctl set_user_tags <admin_user> administrator

Set up a new user for the specific instance (vhost) you’ll be using:
rabbitmqctl add_vhost <vhostname>
rabbitmqctl add_user <username> <password>
rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p <vhostname> <username> "^<username>.*" ".*" ".*"

Check that everything looks OK:
rabbitmqctl list_vhosts
rabbitmqctl list_users
rabbitmqctl list_permissions -p dev
rabbitmqctl status
