This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you've got a recent version of Ubuntu then there's a version in the repositories: try this:

sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server

If this version is too old for you you can use the .deb file from the RabbitMQ site.

Assuming you have a recent version of Ubuntu, the most supported way to install RabbitMQ is via apt-get install rabbitmq-server. The downside of this is that the official repos are usually a few versions behind.

The version available for Ubuntu Precise is v2.7.1, which is nearly 9 months old, at the time of this writing. However, with the upcoming (slated for October 18th, 2012) release of the next Ubuntu version, Quantal Quetzal, the rabbitmq-server package is getting upgraded to RabbitMQ v2.8.4. This version was released on 22 June 2012, so it's pretty recent.

If you need a more up-to-date version of RabbitMQ, you can add the Rabbit MQ repo to your sources list and install from them directly following these instructions, or you can download the .deb file, or you can build from source.

I would recommend sticking with the supported repositories' version, but your needs may dictate otherwise.
