To wards the end of LPTHW Zed suggests going off and learning Django. It also became apparent to me that I need to get comfortable with testing so I have been working through Obey the testing Goat.
I saw it described as ‘learn Django through testing’.
I have hit a wall at: https://www.obeythetestinggoat.com/book/chapter_automate_deployment_with_fabric.html
My github repo for this project is: https://github.com/BainesB/MyLittleList.git
The site that I am trying to build is: http://www.muddymarvellous.co.uk/ and .com
ssh’d into my server, when I do:
sudo systemctl enable gunicorn-muddymarvellous.com
I get Failed to execute operation: Invalid argument’.
When I do:
sudo systemctl start muddymarvellous.com
I get Failed to start gunicorn-muddymarvellous.co.uk.service: Unit gunicorn-muddymarvellous.co.uk.service is not loaded properly: Invalid argument.
My investigation so far.
Hypothesis: syntax error / typo
/etc/systemd/system/gunicorn-muddymarvellous.co.uk.service had a tab, rather than 4spaces before ‘–bind unix:’ and the some on the line bellow so I have changed that. To no effect.
Hypothesis: not named correctly:
sudo ls /etc/systemd/system/gu*
Q: should there be a etc/systemd/system/gunicorn-muddymarvellous.co…
Q: are these named wrong?
The ‘gunicorn-mysite’ bit of ‘sudo systemctl enable gunicorn-superlists.ottg.eu’ command wont tab complete for me.
sudo journalctl -b | grep muddy | less
shows me that there are lots of instances of:
ubuntu-512mb-lon1-01 systemd: [etc/systemd/system/gunicorn-muddymarvellous.co.uk.service:9 Missing ‘=’.
I have looked in the authers git repo and gunicorn template. --ch08l007-- seems to have an ‘=’ in all the places I do. So I think I must still be miss understanding something.
Googling: gunicorn Missing ‘=’. It seems that some people are having a thing where the socket files aren’t being made.
- Is this liky to be the case? How can I investigate?
I see that /tmp is a place for temp files. Which is why there seems to be only one file with a really long name in there, when I: ls /tmp
Is there anything else I can do to debug this?
What should I be looking at? Is there something wrong with my approach.
This has stalled me for a few weeks now. Anything help that move me forward would be gratefully received.
