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

Here is my following configuration

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

[Install]
WantedBy=sockets.target

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

          --bind unix:/run/gunicorn.sock \
          pos.wsgi:application

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?
