RabbitMQ start with FreeBSD

Ivan Radovanovic's picture

1. Install erlang from ports
2. grab latest binary tar.gz package from their website download session (file name should be something like rabbitmq-server-generic-unix-X.Y.Z.tar.gz) - unpack it somewhere
3. start server from the directory where you unpack it sbin/rabbitmq-server
4. when you need to stop it run sbin/rabbitmqctl stop

It is also possible to compile it directly from source, but there seem to be some problems with the way erlang installs on FreeBSD from ports (some hrl files end up in wrong places), so you it might be necessary to fix that before compilation.

Prior to checking (almost useless) tutorials they are pushing on their website it is better to check this (well hidden) page
