Installing Rabbit-MQ Server

Hi Friends,

In coming sections, we will delve into new advanced cross platform messaging system which is really the buzz word these days. This is one of the key things for building MicroServices. Hence, we will first looking at the basics of Rabbit-MQ installation process.


Rabbit-MQ is dependent on erlang( Hence, before installing Rabbit-MQ, we need to install this.

Here, we need to download the compatible windows version and then install the same. Here, I downloaded the 64 bit version as highlighted below.


After installing the same. I downloaded Rabbit-MQ from ( as shown below.


Once, the same gets installed, I need to go into the following directory in the cmd prompt

C:\Program Files\RabbitMQ Server\rabbitmq_server-3.6.6\sbin

And, then enable the management console from the cmd prompt using “rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management“.


Then, it will prompt firewall message window. Click OK. Now, we need to restart the Rabbit-MQ services from services shown below.


Once, the same gets started successfully, then we can get started with management console login. Default port is 15672. Hence, we need to login at http://localhost:15672/#/. This will open below login window.


Here, default credentials are username:- guest and password:- guest. Once, I login, it will present below screen.


This means that our Rabbit-MQ setup is successful. In next section, we will continue discussing Rabbit-MQ. Till then stay tuned and happy coding.
