rabbitmq-server starting.... TIMEOUT
  • Hi all,

    I've been trying to install Airtime on Debian 6.0 x86 since 3 days ago.

    The process seems to go: but stops with "rabbitmq-server starting:"...
    After that nothing happens.

    I tried to understand why. all dependencies looks to be ok but.. no way.

    Be aware that I'm working always as "root".

    on debian you must change the config file from rabbitmq-server (/etc/rabbitmq/ )

    you can find more informations in the airtime manual

    In Debian 6.0 (Squeez e) the rabbitmq-server daemon does not start automatically after a reboot. T his should be fixed before
    installing Airtime, to prevent problems at playout time. If the rabbitmq-server package was installed before the last reboot, you
    will need to run:
    # invo ke -rc.d ra b b itm q -s e rve r s ta rt
    as the root user before the installation of Airtime. If it is not already installed, run the following command as root:
    # a p t-ge t ins ta l l ra b b itm q -s e rve r
    After a fresh installation, rabbitmq-server will start automatically, so there is no need to run the invoke-rc.d command
    mentioned above.
    In either case, you should then edit lines 13 and 14 of the file /etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server (as root) to show:
    # D e fa u l t-S ta rt: 2 3 4 5
    # D e fa u l t-S to p : 0 1 6
    and then run the command (as root):
    # u p d a te -rc.d ra b b itm q -s e rve r d e fa u l ts
    T his should make sure that rabbitmq-server starts after the next reboot.

  • I'm not aware of any special steps needed to run Airtime on Debian. I use Debian Squeeze as my dev machine, and it runs without any problems.

    It looks like rabbitmq-server is trying to start, but having trouble doing so. Please post the logs from /var/log/rabbitmq. There is a file there named "startup_err".

    Hi Dario,

    RabbitMQ requires a fixed and resolvable hostname (see http://www.rabbitmq.com/ec2.html#issues-hostname) which is normal for a server. For a desktop or laptop machine where the hostname changes frequently or is not resolvable, this issue may prevent RabbitMQ from starting.

    When using a desktop or laptop computer with a dynamic IP address, such as an address obtained from a wireless network, the rabbitmq-server daemon must not start up before the NetworkManager service.

  • I suppose this is my problem.

    I bought a VPS but I didn't indicate a true domain name. So I use the server IP as hostname.
