Gunicorn Error: ModuleNotFoundError - No module named 'weatherapp.wsgi'

I'm having some trouble deploying my Django application on Heroku using Gunicorn, and I could really use some assistance.

Here's some background information about my project:

Project Name: weatherapp


web: gunicorn weatherapp.wsgi:application --log-file -

import os
from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application

os.environ.setdefault('DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE', 'weatherapp.settings')

application = get_wsgi_application()

Error Message

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/app/.heroku/python/lib/python3.12/site-packages/gunicorn/", line 609, in spawn_worker ... ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'weatherapp.wsgi'

Relavent code in

WSGI_APPLICATION = 'content_aggregator.wsgi.application'

    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.sqlite3',
        'NAME': BASE_DIR / 'db.sqlite3',

STATIC_URL = '/static/'
STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'staticfiles')
STATICFILES_DIRS = (os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static'),)

MEDIA_URL = '/imgs/'

It seems like Gunicorn is unable to locate the weatherapp.wsgi module during the deployment process.

I've double-checked my project structure and everything seems to be in order. Could anyone please provide some guidance on what might be causing this issue and how I can resolve it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Started the Gunicorn server with the command gunicorn weatherapp.wsgi:application --log-file -.

But no changes

The reason might be that unlike in dev mode your terminal does not sit within the folder of your project. I can't explain it well, but that procfile might try to start the app from within your home directory - but there is no weatherapp in it!

You could test this with creating a

import os
print("Current working directory:", os.getcwd())

and then within your procfile:

web: python /full/path/to/

Give the full path here, otherwise it won't find the file either.

To make your gunicorn run you can also just pass the full path! procfile

web: gunicorn /full/path/to/weatherapp.wsgi:application --log-file -
