journalctl command shows no logs

Recently, I deployed a django project using this tutorial.

When I use sudo journalctl -u gunicorn to check gunicorn logs I always get “No entries”. This happens even when the application has errors.

usr@ubuntu:~/api$ sudo journalctl -u gunicorn
[sudo] password for user: 
-- No entries --

This is still an issue on all of my droplets, starting recently. There is a fix, which is to restart systemd-journald.

I tried the same the other day and got no idea why it wouldn’t work, but what I did manage to find was the logs are in /var/logs/ and then you have access to read all of them and I recall seeing one in there for gunicorn.

Sorry wish I could be a little more accurate but don’t have my terminal open at moment, but i hope this helps.
