Installing latest RabbitMQ on CentOS 7

This post is a quick reminder for the future that may help you too.

If you want to install the latest RabbitMQ package for your CentOS 7 you can do it in only three steps:

sudo yum install epel-release -y
sudo curl -s https://packagecloud.io/install/repositories/rabbitmq/rabbitmq-server/script.rpm.sh | sudo bash
sudo yum install rabbitmq-server -y

Then, as always, you can start it and enable the service:

sudo systemctl enable rabbitmq-server
sudo systemctl start rabbitmq-server

Check that the service is running either with:

sudo systemctl is-active rabbitmq-server

or:

sudo systemctl status rabbitmq-server

If serving to remote hosts, a firewalld rule may be useful:

firewall-cmd --add-port=5672/tcp --zone=public --permanent
firewall-cmd --reload

See ya!
