NGNIX 504 Gateway Time-out

Hi, I’ve been following this tutorial

I’m stuck on Configuring Nginx to Proxy Requests.

Nginx error logs: 2021/04/23 18:08:01 [error] 115757#115757: *4 upstream timed out (110: Connection timed out) while reading response header from upstream, client:, server: sub.mysite.comm, request: “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “http://unix:/root/text_generator/textgen.sock/favicon.ico”, host: “”, referrer: “

In the browser my IP address page shows a “Welcome to nginx!” message and my website returns 504 Gateway Time-out nginx/1.18.0 (Ubuntu).

Thanks in advance I’m very stuck!
