An example of Laravel’s method using RabbitMQ



RabbitMQ is sure that everyone knows about it and won’t introduce it much. This implementation uses RabbitMQ as the driver of the Larvel queue instead of Redis. The following example is installed in Laradock.


  1. Switch to the laradock directory and change the value of.Env for INSTALL_AMQP to true
  2. docker-compose stop workspace php-fpm php-worker
  3. docker-compose build workspace php-fpm php-worker rabbitmq
  4. docker-compose up -d workspace php-fpm php-worker rabbitmq

Extension package installation and configuration

  1. Enter the workspace container and install the extension package composer require vladimir-yuldashev/laravel-queue-rabbitmq in the project directory
  2. Next, add rabbitmq configuration to connections in config/queue.php file and modify it as appropriate

'rabbitmq' => [

  'driver' => 'rabbitmq',

   * Set to "horizon" if you wish to use Laravel Horizon.
  'worker' => env('RABBITMQ_WORKER', 'default'),

  'dsn' => env('RABBITMQ_DSN', null),

   * Could be one a class that implements \Interop\Amqp\AmqpConnectionFactory for example:
   * - \EnqueueAmqpExt\AmqpConnectionFactory if you install enqueue/amqp-ext
   * - \EnqueueAmqpLib\AmqpConnectionFactory if you install enqueue/amqp-lib
   * - \EnqueueAmqpBunny\AmqpConnectionFactory if you install enqueue/amqp-bunny

  'factory_class' => Enqueue\AmqpLib\AmqpConnectionFactory::class,

  'host' => env('RABBITMQ_HOST', ''),
  'port' => env('RABBITMQ_PORT', 5672),

  'vhost' => env('RABBITMQ_VHOST', '/'),
  'login' => env('RABBITMQ_LOGIN', 'guest'),
  'password' => env('RABBITMQ_PASSWORD', 'guest'),

  'queue' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE', 'default'),

  'options' => [

    'exchange' => [

      'name' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_NAME'),

       * Determine if exchange should be created if it does not exist.

      'declare' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_DECLARE', true),

       * Read more about possible values at

      'type' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_TYPE', \Interop\Amqp\AmqpTopic::TYPE_DIRECT),
      'passive' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_PASSIVE', false),
      'durable' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_DURABLE', true),
      'auto_delete' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_AUTODELETE', false),
      'arguments' => env('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE_ARGUMENTS'),

    'queue' => [

       * Determine if queue should be created if it does not exist.

      'declare' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_DECLARE', true),

       * Determine if queue should be binded to the exchange created.

      'bind' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_DECLARE_BIND', true),

       * Read more about possible values at

      'passive' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_PASSIVE', false),
      'durable' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_DURABLE', true),
      'exclusive' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_EXCLUSIVE', false),
      'auto_delete' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_AUTODELETE', false),
      'arguments' => env('RABBITMQ_QUEUE_ARGUMENTS'),

   * Determine the number of seconds to sleep if there's an error communicating with rabbitmq
   * If set to false, it'll throw an exception rather than doing the sleep for X seconds.

  'sleep_on_error' => env('RABBITMQ_ERROR_SLEEP', 5),

   * Optional SSL params if an SSL connection is used
   * Using an SSL connection will also require to configure your RabbitMQ to enable SSL. More details can be founds here:

  'ssl_params' => [
    'ssl_on' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL', false),
    'cafile' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL_CAFILE', null),
    'local_cert' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL_LOCALCERT', null),
    'local_key' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL_LOCALKEY', null),
    'verify_peer' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL_VERIFY_PEER', true),
    'passphrase' => env('RABBITMQ_SSL_PASSPHRASE', null),


Modify QUEUE_CONNECTION to rabbitmq in.Env and add the following values


There are two values to illustrate, because they are in Laradock, RABBITMQ_HOST is set to rabbitmq; if Laravel Horizon was used before, RABBITMQ_WORKER is set to horizon.
