Hi @shubhamshirbhate310,

I’m not quite sure I understood, did you want to start gunicorn on another port rather than 8000 and it failed or it failed because you wanted to start it on port 8000.

If you wanted to start gunicorn on another port, I’ll recommend reading the Documentation Here. There are a couple of ways to do it explained in the docs. Here is one example

gunicorn --paste development.ini -b :8080 --chdir /path/to/project

You’ll, of course, need to change the /path/to/project with the actual path.

If you wanted to start it on port 8000 and it failed then, most probably something was already listening to that port. You can check that by running the following command on your droplet

netstat -tulpen | grep 8000

It will show you what’s listening on the said port.
