Install RabbitMQ on AlmaLinux 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install RabbitMQ on AlmaLinux 8. For those of you who didn’t know, RabbitMQ is open-source message-broker software built around Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) protocol. RabbitMQ can be easily deployed in distributed and federated configurations to meet high-scale, high-availability requirements.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation of the RabbitMQ on AlmaLinux 8. You can follow the same instructions for Rocky Linux.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: AlmaLinux 8.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install RabbitMQ on AlmaLinux 8

Step 1. First, let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date.

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install epel-release

Step 2. Installing RabbitMQ on AlmaLinux 8.

RabbitMQ software provides a bash script for automated installation of their official yum repository. Run the following command to install RabbitMQ yum repository on your system:

curl -s | sudo bash

Next, build cache for newly installed yum repositories:

Then, install RabbitMQ using the following command below:

After installing RabbitMQ-server successfully. We start and enable rabbitmq-server to run on boot:

sudo systemctl enable rabbitmq-server

Step 3. Installing RabbitMQ Management UI.

The web management console helps you for managing the RabbitMQ server. Run the following command to install RabbitMQ Management UI on your system:

By default, RabbitMQ creates a user named “guest” with the password “guest”. You can create your own administrator account on the server. Change password with your own password:

rabbitmqctl list_users
rabbitmqctl add_user admin strong-your-passwd

Step 4. Configuring Firewall.

If you have an active Firewalld service, allow ports 5672 and 15672:

sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --permanent --add-port={4369,25672,5671,5672,15672,61613,61614,1883,8883}/tcp
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
