The rabbitmqctl status output you posted suggests you got it running OK, 
but for the record:  If you've successfully compiled it, you can either 
symlink in into rabbitmq-server/plugins/ or drop the rabbithub.ez in the 
same place.  RabbitMQ should then tell you the RabbitHub has started up 
during boot.

In general you'll need to address endpoints, e.g.,

RabbitHub implements PubSubHubbub (a.k.a., PuSH), which isn't RESTful 
(and shouldn't be).  However, it *is* a fairly idiomatic use of HTTP.

Hope this helps; have fun!
