Django Celery - Cannot connect to amqp://guest@127.0.0.8000:5672//

I'm trying to set up Django-Celery. I'm going through the tutorial

http://docs.celeryproject.org/en/latest/django/first-steps-with-django.html

when I run
$ python manage.py celery worker --loglevel=info

I get

[Tasks]

has anyone encountered this issue before?

settings.py

# Django settings for summertime project.
import djcelery
djcelery.setup_loader()

BROKER_URL = 'amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672/'

...

INSTALLED_APPS = {
...
'djcelery',
'celerytest'
}


wsgi.py

import djcelery
djcelery.setup_loader()

Answer

You are trying to connect to a local instance of RabbitMQ.

BROKER_URL = 'amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672/'

in your settings.py). If you are working currently on development, you could avoid setting up Rabbit and all the mess around it, and just use a development-version of a Message Queue with the Django Database.

Do this by replacing your previous configuration with

BROKER_URL = 'django://' and add this app:

INSTALLED_APPS += ('kombu.transport.django', )

Finally, launch the worker with

./manage.py celery worker --loglevel=info
