Now we will connect magento2 with rabbitMQ, which is installed on EC2 instance. you can connect it with your local instance of magento as well.
just open your app/etc/env.php file and add code as per below highlight.
return [
    'backend' => [
        'frontName' => 'admin_348pwd'
    'queue' => [
        'amqp' => [
            'host' => '',
            'port' => '5672',
            'user' => 'rabit',
            'password' => 'admin123',
            'virtualhost' => '/',
            'ssl' => ''
    'crypt' => [
        'key' => 'c17d9285bd7188b929aeb167c6709690'
    'db' => [
        'table_prefix' => '',
        'connection' => [
            'default' => [
                'host' => 'localhost',
                'dbname' => 'phpacademy',
                'username' => 'root',
                'password' => 'root@123',
                'model' => 'mysql4',
                'engine' => 'innodb',
                'initStatements' => 'SET NAMES utf8;',
                'active' => '1',
                'driver_options' => [
                    1014 => false
Here you can see few parameters we have set
host : if will be public ip of your EC2 instance
port : it will be 5672
user : it will be username of your rabittMQ, Please make sure user has virtual host permission as below
If It dont have any access please click on username, you can see Set permission button, click on it to give access.
Now run php bin/magento setup:upgrade command to sync your consumer and queues to rabittMQ.
If you didn’t created any consumer and queues you will see below queue in rabittMQ
which is magento’s default queue.
