i installed from the RPM, which created the rabbitmq log directory in
the appropriate place, and with the appropriate ownership as
rabbitmq:rabbitmq - it's just that on restart apparently the logs
would be created owned by root which would block startup.

as above - was created at /var/log/rabbitmq by the rpm.
