Nginx Ubuntu 18.04

I run a Nginx on Ubuntu 18.04 with Python and Flask..I follow this 2 tutorial.

1) How To Install Nginx on Ubuntu 18.04
2) How To Serve Flask Applications with uWSGI and Nginx on Ubuntu 18.04

But everyday I check my application,the request always Server Internal Error 500. My application is new,just run for 3 days.But the server keep failed.This happen everyday.

After I run this command,it works again.

sudo systemctl restart myproject

But come on,I need to restart the server everyday??

Here is the result get when I check the /var/log/nginx/error.log.1

2019/03/13 14:47:47 [crit] 7277#7277: *1 connect() to unix:/var/www/html/myproject/myproject.sock failed (2: No such file or directory) while connecting to upstream, client: “someip”, server: , request: “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “uwsgi://unix:/var/www/html/myproject/myproject.sock:”, host: “someip”, referrer: “some_ip”

And at the same time the report when I login to putty is feel weird..

Here is the log when I login to Putty

It said usage of 8.8% and Memory usage 41%,I mean my application just 1 file and serve for only 3 days with few user for this moment,is this a normal situation?

This situation happen already 3 days..Everyday I need to key in the command to restart the server.Can somebody let me know?

Cause I dont want to end up get this ->> ** Networking Disabled** and this situation happened last time which make me need to set up the whole thing again.

It sounds like the service is stopping. Try this to see if you get any clear error output:

journalctl -u myproject.service
