How to install Beanstalkd on CentOS 6

All of the how to’s to setup Beanstalkd I found online were for Ubuntu. So to give CentOS some love, here you go…

  1. You need to have the EPEL repo (http://www.servermom.org/2-cents-tip-how-to-enable-epel-repo-on-centos-6-and-5/894/)
  2. yum install beanstalkd
  3. chkconfig beanstalkd on
  4. service beanstalkd start
  5. service beanstalkd status
  6. by default beanstalkd is open for all IPs on the server on port 11300. edit config file at nano /etc/sysconfig/beanstalkd to restrict
  7. fin!
