Django - Gunicorn bind problem - Import error no module named django.conf

I am going through the How To Install and Configure Django with Postgres, Nginx, and Gunicorn tutorial and I got stuck in the ninth step.

When I try to execute the command gunicorn_django bind… I get an error that says Import error: no module named django.conf that is coming from the …/gunicorn/app/

The virtualenv is activated, I am logged in as root and I also tried to run that command with sudo. Still no success…

Any ideas?


Following this tutorial… you should be able to bind from within the virtual env.

cd ~/myprojectdir gunicorn --bind myproject.wsgi

That works for me if I am in the venv… however, it doesn’t work automatically, because the config for exec start. ExecStart=~project/projenv/bin/gunicorn --bind unix:/run/gunicorn.sock myApp.wsgi:application

The issue is that the bind is missing the OS Path try: gunicorn --env DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=myproject.settings myproject.wsgi
