Hi @prakashlale97,

It seems like you are trying to reach gunicorn’s sockets locally.

I would assume you’ve followed this tutorial :

If you haven’t, I strongly suggest doing so. Anyway, let’s assume you have. Are you sure the gunicorn service is actually running properly? To check that, please try out the following

sudo systemctl status gunicorn

Next, check for the existence of the gunicorn.sock file within the /run directory:

file /run/gunicorn.sock
/run/gunicorn.sock: socket

If the systemctl status command indicated that an error occurred or if you do not find the gunicorn.sock file in the directory, it’s an indication that the Gunicorn socket was not able to be created correctly. Check the Gunicorn socket’s logs by typing:

sudo journalctl -u gunicorn.socket

Take another look at your /etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.socket file to fix any problems before continuing.
