Setting up Gunicorn for Django Project - 203/EXEC
I’m trying to follow this tutorial on hosting my django app: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-django-with-postgres-nginx-and-gunicorn-on-ubuntu-16-04#prerequisites-and-goals
I’m on the step “Check for the Gunicorn Socket File” - everything before that has been very successful. However, when I try this step, I just get an unhelpful error message.
Here is my /etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.service file:
[Unit] Description=gunicorn daemon After=network.target [Service] User=arya Group=www-data WorkingDirectory=/home/arya/measuring_polyphony_django ExecStart=/home/arya/envs/polyphonynev/bin/gunicorn --access-logfile - --workers 3 --bind unix:/home/arya/measuring_polyphony_django/measuring_polyphony.sock measuring_polyphony.wsgi:application [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Here’s the message I get when I run sudo systemctl status gunicorn
arya@polyphony:~$ sudo systemctl status gunicorn ● gunicorn.service - gunicorn daemon Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/gunicorn.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2017-05-27 16:04:09 UTC; 13min ago Main PID: 9039 (code=exited, status=203/EXEC) May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: Started gunicorn daemon. May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=203/EXEC May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Unit entered failed state. May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
There is no measuring_polyphony.sock file either.
Here’s what sudo journalctl -u gunicorn says:
May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: Started gunicorn daemon. May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=203/EXEC May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Unit entered failed state. May 27 16:04:09 polyphony systemd: gunicorn.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
So not much more helpful than the previous command.
To go through all the things that were listed as could go wrong in the guide:
- The project files are owned by the “arya” user
- The WorkingDirectory is definitely the home directory for my django project
arya@polyphony:~$ ls /home/arya/measuring_polyphony_django importer.py measuring.csv media my_project_visualized.png schema.png static viewer manage.py measuring_polyphony mei_files __pycache__ secrets.py templates
3a. The path to Gunicorn is the correct one for my virtualenv (and the one I used to test gunicorn earlier in the tutorial)
arya@polyphony:~$ source ~/envs/polyphonynev/bin/activate (polyphonynev) arya@polyphony:~$ which gunicorn /home/arya/envs/polyphonynev/bin/gunicorn
3b. The directory in the –bind option is definitely able to be created (I tested by running nano and saving a random file to the directory)
3c. The “measuringpolyphony.wsgi” setting definitely translates to this folder in the WORKINGDIRECTORY
(polyphonynev) arya@polyphony:~/measuring_polyphony_django$ ls measuring_polyphony/wsgi.py measuring_polyphony/wsgi.py
Does anyone else see what could be wrong with this? Thank you!
