Question

Django - The requested resource was not found on this server

I’ve installed Django, Nginx, Gunicorn and was able to get the default Django page when I had DEBUG = True. However, now I Have DEBUG = False and the page displays: The requested resource was not found on this server. I have the following in my configuration:

abcproject –abcweb —settings.py —wsgi.py —urls.py –manage.py –static –templates –venv –app .env

The app is the Django application. I have setup all the files I had in development for the app. That is the app I want displayed as the main website. Within app, I have templates, views, models, etc.

I have a .env file with environment variables. Here is an excerpt of my wsgi.py within --abcweb

import os from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application

os.environ.setdefault(‘DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE’, ‘abcweb.settings’)

application = get_wsgi_application()

Here is my nginx configuration:

server { server_name domain.com www.domain.com;

location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
location /static/ {
    root /home/user/abcproject;
}

location / {
    include proxy_params;
    proxy_pass http://unix:/run/gunicorn.sock;        
}

listen 443 ssl; # managed by Certbot
#info managed by certbot -- removed for privacy

} server { if ($host = www.domain.com) { return 301 https://$host$request_uri; } # managed by Certbot

if ($host = domain.com) {
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
} # managed by Certbot


listen 80;
server_name domain.com www.domain.com;
return 404; # managed by Certbot

And the following is my Gunicorn configuration:

[Unit] Description=gunicorn daemon Requires=gunicorn.socket After=network.target

[Service] User=pyxis Group=www-data WorkingDirectory=/home/user/abcproject ExecStart=/home/user/abcproject/venv/bin/gunicorn
–access-logfile -
–workers 3
–bind unix:/run/gunicorn.sock
abcweb.wsgi:application

[Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target

I tried running: gunicorn -b 0.0.0.0:8000 abcweb.wsgi:application

It runs with no errors, but still yields the page The requested resource was not found on this server.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I solved by changing my path in abcweb urls to path('’, include('app.urls’)),
