RabbitMQ Dockerfile

A Dockerfile that produces a Docker Image for RabbitMQ.

RabbitMQ version

The master branch currently hosts RabbitMQ 3.6.0

The Dockerfile can be founded here.


Build the image

To create the image zeroows/rabbitmq, execute the following command on the docker-rabbitmq folder:

$ docker build -t zeroows/rabbitmq .

Run the image

To run the image and bind to host port 5672:

$ docker run -d --name rabbitmq -p 5672:5672 zeroows/rabbitmq

If you want also to expose the RabbitMQ Management interface, you will need also to expose port 15672:

$ docker run -d --name rabbitmq -p 5672:5672 -p 15672:15672 zeroows/rabbitmq

The first time you run your container, a new user rabbitmq with all privileges will be created with a random password.
To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

RabbitMQ User: "rabbitmq"
RabbitMQ Password: "8psfzXmp6t23rKr6"
RabbitMQ Virtual Host: "/"


If you want to preset credentials instead of a random generated ones, you can set the following environment variables:

  • RABBITMQ_USERNAME to set a specific username
  • RABBITMQ_PASSWORD to set a specific password
  • RABBITMQ_VHOST to set a specific Virtual Host

On this example we will preset our custom username and password:

$ docker run -d \
    --name rabbitmq \
    -p 5672:5672 \
    -e RABBITMQ_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e RABBITMQ_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    -e RABBITMQ_VHOST=myvhost \
