Install Rabbit MQ 3.3 on CentOS 7

2 Comments

This is a step by step guide to install the Rabbit MQ 3.3.5.1 for the series of topics about AMQP messaging. Rabbit MQ support most of the Linux distributions, Mac OS and MS Windows. I would demonstrate it on CentOS 7 as an example.

1. Install compiler and related if  necessary

# sudo yum install gcc glibc-devel make ncurses-devel openssl-devel autoconf

2. Update latest EPEL

# wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-1.noarch.rpm
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
# sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm epel-release-7*.rpm

3. Install Erlang

# wget http://packages.erlang-solutions.com/erlang-solutions-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
# yum install -y erlang

Type “erl” to verfiy if Erlang is installed correctly.

4. Install Rabbit MQ

# wget http://www.rabbitmq.com/releases/rabbitmq-server/v3.3.5/rabbitmq-server-3.3.5-1.noarch.rpm

Add the necessary keys for verification by

# rpm --import http://www.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-signing-key-public.asc

Install with command

# yum install rabbitmq-server-3.3.5-1.noarch.rpm

Issue command to turn on the web UI plugin

# sudo rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management

Change permission

# chown -R rabbitmq:rabbitmq /var/lib/rabbitmq/

Issue following command to start the server (*1)

# /usr/sbin/rabbitmq-server

5. Setup admin user account
In /usr/sbin, create new user “mqadmin” by

# rabbitmqctl add_user mqadmin mqadmin

Issue following command to assign administrator role

 

# rabbitmqctl set_user_tags mqadmin administrator

Issue command ‘rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p / mqadmin “.*” “.*” “.*” ‘ to grant permission

# rabbitmqctl set_permissions -p / mqadmin ".*" ".*" ".*"

Now you can access the web admin by http://host:15672/ (*2)
Remark:

(*1) You may not start the server with command “service rabbitmq-server start” successfully as documented in official manual, please read this link to resolve https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rabbitmq-users/iK3q4GLpHXY

(*2) The default guest/guest user account can only be accessed via localhost
