What do you mean with "configuration"?  The configuration described here
http://www.rabbitmq.com/configure.html is in a user-created file, so that won't
be affected by server crashes.

If you mean that you lost all the non-durable resources (e.g. queues), there
isn't much you can do about that apart from having the creation process
automated by some code, which is usually the case - instead of creating them
manually with the management plugin.

You can also export the definition as Alvaro said, but in my opinion that's
quite a brittle solution.
