There are a couple of changes in 2.5.0 that are interacting here.

One is that rabbitmq-mochiweb now allows you to run separate apps on 
separate ports, and *in the default configuration* will run management 
on 55672 and any other HTTP plugins, including JSON-RPC, on 55670. Look 
at http://www.rabbitmq.com/mochiweb.html for instructions on how to 
change this (although our guess is that most people using JSON-RPC and 
mgmt would rather have them on separate ports).

This was mentioned in the release notes, but I guess not very prominently.

The next release will include a list of all the open HTTP ports and 
what's running on them in the management plugin, so this should be more

Yeah, this is a bit unfortunate. rabbitmq-mochiweb now contains some 
utility functions for webmachine. They're not used if you don't have a 
webmachine-using plugin installed, but the xref check still complains. I 
suppose we could have rabbitmq-webmachine, but we already have too many 
dependency plugins :(
