nginx and supervisor setup in Ubuntu

Python Programming

Question or problem about Python programming:

I’m using django-gunicorn-nginx setup by following this tutorial Upto nginx setup, it is working. Then I installed supervisor, configured it and then I reboot my server and checked, it shows 502 bad gateway. I’m using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


[program: qlimp]
directory = /home/nirmal/project/qlimp/
user = nirmal
command = /home/nirmal/project/qlimp/
stdout_logfile = /path/to/supervisor/log/file/logfile.log
stderr_logfile = /path/to/supervisor/log/file/error-logfile.log

Then I restarted supervisor and I run this command $ supervisorctl start qlimp and I’m getting this error

unix:///var/run/supervisor.sock no such file

Is there any problem in my supervisor setup?


How to solve the problem:

Solution 1:

That there is no socket file probably means that supervisor isn’t running. A reason that it isn’t running might be that your qlimp.conf file has some sort of error in it. If you do a

sudo service supervisor start

you can see whether or not this is the case. If supervisor is already running, it will say. And if it is catching an error, it will usually give you a more helpful error message than supervisorctl.

Solution 2:

I have met the same issue as you and after several times, here comes the solution:

  1. First remove the apt-get supervisor version:

     sudo apt-get remove supervisor 
  2. Kill the backend supervisor process:

     sudo ps -ef | grep supervisor 
  3. Then get the newest version(apt-get version was 3.0a8):

    sudo easy_install(pip install) supervisor==3.0b2 
  4. Echo the config file(root premission):

    echo_supervisord_conf > /etc/supervisord.conf 

5.Start supervisord:

   sudo supervisord

6.Enter supervisorctl:

   sudo supervisorctl

Anything has been done! Have fun!

Solution 3:

Try this

cd /etc/supervisor
sudo supervisord
sudo supervisorctl restart all

Solution 4:

Are you sure that supervisord is installed and running? Is there a socket file in present at /var/run/supervisor.sock?

The error indicates that supervisorctl, the control CLI, cannot reach the UNIX socket to communicate with supervisord, the daemon.

You could also check /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf and see if the values for the unix_http_server and supervisorctl sections match.

Note that this is a Ubuntu-level problem, not a problem with Python, Django or nginx and as such this question probably belongs on ServerFault.

Solution 5:

On Ubuntu 16+ it seems to been caused by the switch to systemd, this workaround may fix for new servers:

 # Make sure Supervisor comes up after a reboot.
 $ sudo systemctl enable supervisor

 # Bring Supervisor up right now.
 $ sudo systemctl start supervisor

and then do check your status of iconic.conf [My example] of supervisor

$ sudo supervisorctl status iconic

enter image description here

PS: Make sure gunicorn should not have any problem while running.

Solution 6:

The error may be due to that you don’t have the privilege.
Maybe you can fix the error by this way, open your terminal, and input vim /etc/supervisord.conf to edit the file, search the lines

;file=/tmp/supervisor.sock   ; (the path to the socket file)
;chmod=0700                  ; socket file mode (default 0700)

and delete the Semicolon in the start of the string ;file=/tmp/supervisor.sock and ;chmod=0700, restart your supervisord. I suggest you do it.

Solution 7:

Make sure that in /etc/supervisor.conf the following two sections exists

file=/tmp/supervisor.sock ; path to your socket file

supervisor.rpcinterface_factory = supervisor.rpcinterface:make_main_rpcinterface

Solution 8:

You can do something like this :-

sudo touch /var/run/supervisor.sock
sudo chmod 777 /var/run/supervisor.sock
sudo service supervisor restart

It’s definitely work, try this.

Solution 9:

In my case, Supervisor was not running. To spot the issue I run:

sudo systemctl status supervisor.service

The problem was that I had my logs pointing to a non-existing directory, so I just had to create it.

I hope it helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Solution 10:

touch /var/run/supervisor.sock
sudo supervisord -c /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf

and after
supervisorctl restart all

if you want to listen the supervisor port

ps -ef | grep supervisord

if you want kill the process

kill -s SIGTERM 2503  

Hope this helps!
