gunicorn not starting

  • Nginx

hello everyone.

not sure why but i get a 502 gateway nginx 1.10 error when i go to my ip. i just uploaded my files to home/django/django_project. i am guessing the problem is from gunicorn because nothing happens when i type the command service gunicorn restart via putty in the commandline

here is my nginx file

[error] 26244#26244: *674 connect() to unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 110.170.170.250, server: _, request: “HEAD http://67.207.87.22:80/PMA2014/ HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “http://unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket:/PMA2014/”, host: “67.207.87.22” 2017/07/20 12:03:57 [error] 26244#26244: *674 connect() to unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 110.170.170.250, server: _, request: “HEAD http://67.207.87.22:80/PMA2015/ HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “http://unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket:/PMA2015/”, host: “67.207.87.22” 2017/07/20 12:03:57 [error] 26244#26244: *674 connect() to unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 110.170.170.250, server: _, request: “HEAD http://67.207.87.22:80/PMA2016/ HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “http://unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket:/PMA2016/”, host: “67.207.87.22” 2017/07/20 12:03:57 [error] 26244#26244: *674 connect() to unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: 110.170.170.250, server: _, request: “HEAD http://67.207.87.22:80/PMA2017/ HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “http://unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket:/PMA2017/”, host: “67.207.87.22” 2017/07/20 12:03:58 [error] 26244#26244: *674 connect() to unix:/home/django/gunicorn.socket failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client:

Hi @iknwosu3

Correct, the problem is somewhere in Gunicorn, so we’re not going to get much from Nginx. Make sure you’ve activated error logging: http://docs.gunicorn.org/en/stable/settings.html#errorlog Depending on your installation, sometimes it’s already enabled and you’ll find the log somewhere in your app directory or /var/log/gunicorn.log

@iknwosu3

What’s the value of ExecStart in /etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.service?
