I am fairly new to working with servers. I am attempting to run Django on an Ubuntu 12.04 AWS with uwsgi & nginx.

I found a tutorial that I was following: http://uwsgi.readthedocs.org/en/latest/tutorials/Django_and_nginx.html

I created a virtual evn:

virtualenv uwsgi-tutorial
cd uwsgi-tutorial
source bin/activate

Then I installed Python & Django using pip. Then I started a Django project called mysite

Then I installed uwsgi

pip install uwsgi

Then I created a test.py file:

def application(env, start_response):
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type','text/html')])
    return "Hello World"

Then I ran uwsgi:

uwsgi --http :8000 --wsgi-file test.py

The tutorial claims if I point my browser to my http://myip:8000 I should see Hello World in my browser. However, my browser sits waiting as if it is not connecting to the server at all.

When I run uwsgi --http :8000 --wsgi-file test.py I get this output in the terminal:

*** Starting uWSGI 2.0.1 (64bit) on [Tue Feb 25 15:26:43 2014] ***

I may be missing something obvious or not completely understand but any help is greatly appreciated!

  • I never opened port 80... rookie mistake. I hope someone with the same problem with stumble across this and realize that they need to OPEN PORT 80
