ubuntu 14.04, gunicorn, nginx socket connection refused (permissions?)

I’m pretty sure it’s a permissions error im just not completely sure what the permissions should be. My linux, gunicorn and nginx is massively limited, but i’ve ran through a couple of the tutorials with success.

gunicorn is creating my socket file on start, and nginx is looking for it in the right place via the error logs, its just the socket is refusing the connection.

The socket files permissions are deploy:www-data, gunicorn is deploy:deploy and nginx is run with root:root.

Is there any other information i can supply?

from app import app

if __name__ == "__main__":

After I went through and renamed every instance of ‘app’ to ‘application’ everything is working…
