I am using amazon ec2 so hostname changes every time an instance is started.  Because of this, I need to be able to set the name in a configuration file.  I can't find a list of configuration options so can someone tell me how to do this and which configuration file I should be using (I read there are two)?

You can set the env var RABBITMQ_NODENAME or set NODENAME in

Best wishes,
