# Connection Refused when viewing question

Hello!

I'm sorry to ask this, as it has to be simple thing I'm missing/user error. But I'm getting a "Connection refused" error when viewing a question. It looks like I don't have the rabbitMQ / celery setup correctly.

The highlights of the stack:

    defer_celery_task(


Then it goes through celery, to kombu, to amqp to where it bombs out in ampq/transpart.py create_transport

        if not self.sock:
# Didn't connect, return the most recent error message
raise socket.error(last_err)


And raises the exception:

[Errno 111] Connection refused

trying to connect to host:

1127.0.0.1:56721

I'm using the default settings from the repo, including the lines:

BROKER_TRANSPORT = "djkombu.transport.DatabaseTransport"
CELERY_ALWAYS_EAGER = True

import djcelery
