Hello, I was wondering whether it is better after making changes such as uploading updated files to my droplet (Ubuntu Server) should I do which command for Gunicorn restart:
PID=$(systemctl show --value -p MainPID gunicorn.service) && kill -HUP $PID
sudo systemctl restart gunicorn
I’ve been using the second command with no issues, but am wondering whether it is better to get the process ID and kill it?

It’s a lot better to restart gunicorn using
systemctl restart gunicornrather than using the kill command.
THe kill command shouldn’t be such a problem as it sends a signal to the app to shutdown itself but using systemctl is preferable.
