I'm trying to deploy my Django app for the first time on a Digital Ocean VPS. I've used their Django droplet which setup things like this except I'm not using a virtual environment.
After adding my code and changing a few things, if I run gunicorn directly from the command line, the site loads.
However, if I run gunicorn as a service
sudo service gunicorn start, I just get an 500 "Internal Service Error". There is no error in the nginx log file. The gunicorn log file does not exist.
Here is the command I run that works (run from the /home/django directory):
gunicorn --pythonpath=myproject --bind=0.0.0.0:9000 --config /etc/gunicorn.d/gunicorn.py myproject.wsgi:application
Here is the /etc/init/gunicorn.conf file:
description "Gunicorn daemon for Django project" start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE=eth0) stop on runlevel [!12345] # If the process quits unexpectedly trigger a respawn respawn setuid django setgid django chdir /home/django exec gunicorn \ --name=myproject \ --pythonpath=myproject \ --bind=0.0.0.0:9000 \ --config /etc/gunicorn.d/gunicorn.py \ myproject.wsgi:application
I'm new to gunicorn and nginx so this is really stumping me.
