Oct 14 12:49:22 my-server-thing systemd: Failed to start gunicorn daemon.
I suppose something doesn’t add up with my directories. I have
/etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.service which is:
[Unit] Description=gunicorn daemon Requires=gunicorn.socket After=network.target [Service] User=myname Group=myname EnvironmentFile=/home/myname/myapp/env WorkingDirectory=/home/myname/myapp ExecStart=/home/myname/myapp/env/bin/gunicorn \ --access-logfile - \ --workers 3 \ --bind unix:/run/gunicorn.sock \ myapp.wsgi:application [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
The directories I’m working in are as follows.
has my requirements.txt file, my env, and another app/ dir. Within myapp/app, I have manage.py and another app/ env. Within myapp/app/app, I have settings.py and wsgi.py.
What am I doing wrong?
