Django will not upgrade. Gunicorn will not run virtualenv python interpreter.
I decided to upgrade my Django site finally, making a jump from 1.6 to 1.11
Simply using the pip method didn’t work because it throws an error about the old version of Django being owned by OS and no supplication to the sudo gods will change its mind about that.
Fine, I thought, I should be using virtualenv anyway. I’ll just figure that out. So I create a virtualenv at /home/django/ahe/ahe and install django 1.11
I have a gunicorn daemon running via an upstart script so I also install gunicorn in the virtualenv. I alter the gunicorn.conf so that it calls this new gunicorn. I kill the old processes. New ones pop up immediately, but when I point my browser to my homepage the result is still running Django 1.6
I’ve tried to keep this simple, but I’ve actually spent hours trying different ways of solving this and I am at a loss. Any help is appreciated. Here’s my gunicorn.conf:
start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE=eth0) stop on runlevel [!12345] # If the process quits unexpectadly trigger a respawn respawn setuid django setgid django chdir /home/django script exec 2>>/tmp/upstartconfig.log set -x # Run gunicorn from the virtualenv cd /home/django/ahe/ahe source bin/activate exec /home/django/ahe/ahe/bin/gunicorn \ --name=django_project \ --pythonpath=django_project \ --bind=127.0.0.1:9000 \ --config /etc/gunicorn.d/gunicorn.py \ django_project.wsgi:application end script
