I am running Ubuntu 12.04 from a VMware image.

I am trying to start the RabbitMQ server. I have followed the instructions from RabbitMQ website but with no luck.

When I type the command

sudo invoke-rc.d rabbitmq-server start --force

I get the message:

* Starting message broker rabbitmq-server

And that's it. It is stuck there and does not progress. I have no idea where to go from here and what to check as I am not that good in Linux just yet.
