That file does not currently exist.  Just create it?

Ah! Glad you sorted this out.

However, you might want to put this customisation into
/etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq-env.conf instead (in a slightly different form):




The reason is that the rabbitmq-env file you edited is part of the
installation - so the next time you upgrade it will get overwritten
again and things will break again...
