-Everything was going great my website was accessible with IP address of the droplet and the domain name too.

  • Then I have tried to install WordPress on my droplet along with the Django.

-Then I have tried to add the one more domain name for my website(wordpress) on a single droplet and all of sudden my ip address is pointing to that WordPress website Django website was no more associated with my ip address of the droplet.
-Then I have reset my droplet to the factory version.

-Then I have started to host my previous django website from scratch and at the Djangowelcomepage(where we can see that django is activated) and then I have copied the content of my website to the droplet.
-After copying my website content I am getting this (502 bad gateway) error and I am unable to access my website neither with ip address now with domain name.

Can someone please help me?

I believe that you need to make sure that the gunicorn service is up and running:

systemctl status gunicorn

If it is not running you should start it with:

systemctl start gunicorn

Also after that make sure that your gunicorn.socket socket exists at:

ls -l /home/django/gunicorn.socket

Let me know how it goes!
