Troubleshooting RabbitMQ installation on OSX via homebrew

Troubleshooting RabbitMQ installation on OSX via homebrew

brew update
brew install rabbitmq

To see if rabbitmq is running after following the installation instructions:

launchctl list | grep rabbit
> 48303	-	homebrew.mxcl.rabbitmq

You should see a process id in the first column. If not, it's because rabbitmq-server is not running.

Try to manually start rabbitmq-server

rabbitmq-server

If you see an error message after a minute or so like:

ERROR: epmd error for host "yourhostname": timeout (timed out establishing tcp connection)

Then you need to update your /etc/hosts file to add your hostname to the list of localhost:

127.0.0.1    yourhostname
