Gunicorn unable to start after server update ( 502 bad gateway )
Hello, I have updated my old Ubuntu server from version 14 to 16.
This also included a Django and Python update.
After restarting the server, I got a 502 error from Nginx, which I have discovered is being caused by Gunicorn not being able to start.
I am able to start gunicorn manually, and the site works perfectly, by doing:
root@server:/home/django/django_project/django_project# gunicorn -b 127.0.0.1:9000 wsgi
wsgi.py is located at /home/django/djangoproject/djangoproject
The problem I am having is that the gunicorn service is not able to start automatically, even if the config (/etc/init/gunicorn.conf) looks correct:
[...] chdir /home/django exec gunicorn \ --name=django_project \ --pythonpath=django_project \ --bind=127.0.0.1:9000 \ --config /etc/gunicorn.d/gunicorn.py \ django_project.wsgi:application
Any ideas of why the service is not starting by itself anymore?
service gunicorn restart
does not work either.
