[rabbitmq-discuss] Problem running rabbit broker

RabbitMQ will create the database files itself; you don't need to do
anything besides ensure the directory is there with the appropriate
privileges (i.e. it is writable for the process that starts RabbitMQ). More
specifically, ensure that /var/lib/rabbitmq and all its subdirectories are
writable by the process that starts RabbitMQ.

However, you need to post more information to get effective help. Saying you
got "this error" without posting the error message itself is not going to
yield useful responses from the mailing list.

Information you should post includes:

   - How did you start the broker (exact command line)?
   - Which operating system and version of Erlang are you using?
   - What is in the rabbit logs (on Linux, /var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit.log and
   - Did you faithfully follow every step of the RabbitMQ installation

Take a look at http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html<http://www.catb.org/%7Eesr/faqs/smart-questions.html>for
more ideas.
