I don't think that's the problem. From the release notes: "When the 
RabbitMQ server detects the presence of an old database, it moves it to 
a backup location, creates a fresh, empty database, and logs a warning."

In fact the error looks more like it's picking up an ancient version of 
rabbitmq - folks were seeing this error 8 months ago when attempting to 
run RabbitMQ 1.4.0 or earlier on R12B-5 (or later). See, for example, 

So I recommend searching the system for any remnants of other rabbitmq 
installations, in particular rabbit_*.beam files, and remove them.
