The instructions in this recipe assume a server running Ubuntu 16.04.

Update/Upgrade Packages

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

Install RabbitMq

At the time of writing this, Ubuntu 16.04 includes RabbitMq server version 3.6.3. To get a more up-to-date version (3.6.12), you can get it from the rabbitmq “testing” repo. To add the repo and the key:

echo 'deb testing main' |
     sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rabbitmq.list

wget -O- |
     sudo apt-key add -

Now, you are ready to install:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server


Check this post for instructions on how to enable and expose RabbitMq management.
