To install beanstalkd on ubuntu 12.04 you use the system package manger
apt-get install beanstalkd
When that is done, edit the config file and enable it to start on boot by uncommenting the bottom line:
$ vim /etc/default/beanstalkd ## Defaults for the beanstalkd init script, /etc/init.d/beanstalkd on ## Debian systems. Append ``-b /var/lib/beanstalkd'' for persistent ## storage. BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_ADDR=0.0.0.0 BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_PORT=11300 DAEMON_OPTS="-l $BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_ADDR -p $BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_PORT" ## Uncomment to enable startup during boot. START=yes
$ service beanstalkd start
$ telnet 127.0.0.1 11300 Trying 127.0.0.1... Connected to 127.0.0.1. Escape character is '^]'.
If you see the following, it hasn't worked:
$ telnet 127.0.0.1 11300 Trying 127.0.0.1... telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
