In this blogpost i will explain how we can use RabbitMQ on our Windows Machine so you have a nice message queuing framework.
RabbitMQ needs the Erlang runtime.

Install Erlang runtime

So we first need to donwload the latest version of the Erlang runtime. At this point 17.5 is the latest version.
Likely you want the 64-bit version. So we start downloading the OTP 17.5 Windows 64-bit Binary File file.

First we start the executable as administrator.


In the next screen just click on the “Next” button.



In the next screen you can change the installation location. You can change it just like i did.
When you changed the location or used the default. Click on the “Next” button.


You can create a shortcut or not. Up to you. After that just click the “Install” button.



When everything installed successfully you can click on the “Close” button.



So now we can start with the installation of RabbitMQ

Install RabbitMQ

Now we can start with the installation of RabbitMQ. Download the last version of the RabbitMQ Server.

First we start the executable as administrator.

On the next screen just click on the “Next” button

In the next screen you can change the installation location. You can change it just like i did.
When you changed the location or used the default. Click on the “Install” button.

When RabbitMQ Server successfully has been installed you can click on the “Finish” button.

Now the RabbitMQ has been installed. But we can’t see anything yet. So we will enable the web-based management interface.

Start the RabbitMQ Command Prompt.

Use the following command to enable the web-based management interface.

rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
