I’m trying a deploy simple Django application on DigitalOcean by following this link I follow every work step by step and successfully run that project via Python manage.py runserver were it’s not throwing any error but when I try to implement it with gunicorn its throw following error

gunicorn.service: Failed with result ‘exit-code’.

Here is my following configuration

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.socket

[Unit]
Description=gunicorn socket

[Socket]
ListenStream=/run/gunicorn.sock

[Install]
WantedBy=sockets.target

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.service

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

[Service]
User=pos
Group=www-data
WorkingDirectory=/home/pos/pos
ExecStart=/home/pos/env/bin/gunicorn \
          --access-logfile - \
          --workers 3 \
          --bind unix:/run/gunicorn.sock \
          pos.wsgi:application

[Install]

sudo systemctl status gunicorn.socket

I have the same problem and can’t deploy my site. Is there anywhere more documentation on how to set up gunicorn.service for digital ocean?
