To install the AMQP PHP extension, you must first install the » librabbitmq library.

Use the following steps to download and install the library:

# Download the rabbitmq-c library @ version 0-9-1
  git clone git://
  cd rabbitmq-c
  # Enable and update the codegen git submodule
  git submodule init
  git submodule update
  # Configure, compile and install
  autoreconf -i && ./configure && make && sudo make install
