The webserver is internal to RabbitMQ, so you would not necessarily see 
anything different.

Some things to try:

* Check rabbitmq-plugins list, to see if the plugin really is enabled

* Check rabbitmqctl status, to see if the plugin really started 
(rabbitmq_management should be listed under running_applications)

* Check the logs, there should be a log entry like:

=INFO REPORT==== 22-Jan-2013::17:15:39 ===
Management plugin started. Port: 15672

* Check something like "netstat -nptl | grep 15672" to make sure the 
port is open.

* Check iptables. At least RHEL ships with a fairly restrictive firewall 
by default that will block access, I don't know if fedora does.

Finally, what sort of failure are you seeing? Connection refused, 
connection timed out, or something else?

Cheers, Simon

No, you should just have to enable the plugin, restart the server and be
