Thank you - I saw that. But we had already installed and built Erlang
from source. For some reason though, you can't install the rpm even
though Erlang is current.
We'll try your approach.

On the RPM section of our server downloads page it says this:
Note to users of RHEL 5 and derived distributions (e.g. CentOS 5): Due to
the EPEL package update policy, EPEL 5 contains Erlang version R12B-5,
which is relatively old. rabbitmq-server supports R12B-5, but performance
may be lower than for more recent Erlang versions, and certain non-core
features are not supported (SSL support, HTTP-based plugins). Therefore,
we recommend that you install the most recent stable version of Erlang.
The easiest way to do this is to use a package repository provided for
this purpose by the owner of the EPEL Erlang package. Enable it by
invoking (as root):
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-erlang.repo
and then install or update erlang with yum install erlang.
Let us know if this works. Also, let us know how to make it easier for
people to find this info on the web site!
