I'm having trouble setting up nginx with gunicorn and django for multiple websites

So I followed this tutorial because part two tells how to do it for multiple websites and domains ( and everything went smoothly till the end when I erase the default config for mine in sites-available and sites-enabled the restart nginx. When I navigate to my site I get a “site cant be reached” error. I created the link for new config to sites-enabled from sites-available. supervisorctl says its running my gunicorn start script when I check the status. What I notice though is that at no point is gunicorn.sock created in the run directory. Am I supposed to create that? I tried that but to no avail. Can someone help

Did you restart nginx after linking from sotes-available to sites-enabled? What’s the nginx status after restart?

  1. sudo systemctl restart nginx
  2. sudo systemctl status nginx

You should see a lot of informations but somewhere will be status.

You can verify your nginx configuration and see is everything okay:

  1. sudo nginx -t
