I have two sites enabled conf. Both are working (somewhat). I only changed the ip address and site domain name.

The configuration below gives me my Django site. I don’t have a homepage so it shows the Nginx default.

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name 122.122.122.122;

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
    location /static/ {
        root /webapps/;
    }

    location / {
        include proxy_params;
        proxy_pass http://unix:/webapps/sym_torb/run/gunicorn.sock;
    }

}

The configuration below gives me an https site but with Gateway 404 in place of my Django URLs. I still see the Nginx default site.


server {
    listen 80;
    server_name site.com;
    return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }
    location /static/ {
        root /webapps/;
    }

    location / {
        include proxy_params;
        proxy_pass http://unix:/webapps/sym_torb/run/gunicorn.sock;
    }

    location /.well-known {
        allow all;
    }
}

server {

    # SSL configuration

    listen 443 ssl http2 default_server;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2 default_server;
    include snippets/ssl-site.com.conf;
    include snippets/ssl-params.conf;

}

I followed the tutorial below without modifying a single line:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-14-04

sudo letsencrypt certonly ‐a webroot ‐‐webroot‐path=/var/www/html ‐d example.com ‐d www.example.com

I have reason to believe that the above line should have been modified to for django or python environment. My path goes like this: /webapps/pythonenv/djangoproject/.

Or maybe not. Thank you for your time.

Were you able to solve this? I’m having the same issue.

I’m having the same issue. How can I renew certificates by cron?
