Based on your previous mail, I suspect you've ended up with the wrong
ownership on /opt/local/var/lib/rabbitmq.  It should be writable by the
rabbitmq user.


sudo chown -R rabbitmq:rabbitmq /opt/local/var/lib/rabbitmq
sudo chmod -R u+rwx /opt/local/var/lib/rabbitmq

should get "sudo rabbitmq-server" or "sudo port load rabbitmq-server"
to work (I'm not sure where you've got "rabbitmqctl start" from).
