Using django: Can Django run on Gunicorn alone (no Apache or nginx)? on newest questions tagged django – Stack Overflow
I have tried just about every django + nginx tutorial on the web and I cannot get an image file to display on the screen. It’s always the old story – 404 PAGE NOT FOUND. The web page loads fine but django.png in my /static/ folder does not. Not sure if it’s a problem in settings.py or with nginx.
I am so frustrated with it that I refuse to look at another “How to get nginx/django tutorial”. If I deploy a website in the near future will Gunicorn suffice to run a Django site and serve static files simultaneously without using Apache or nginx? Is there a big benefit to having a reverse proxy in the first place?
