How to Install RabbitMQ on Your Synology NAS

How to Install RabbitMQ on Your Synology NAS

RabbitMQ is an open source multi-protocol messaging broker. Running rabbitmq-server starts a RabbitMQ node in the foreground. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install RabbitMQ on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest RabbitMQ v3.12.12 release.

Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.

  • STEP 3

Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it rabbitmq. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
