Deploying Python Applications with uWSGI and Nginx on Server Stadium


Deploying Python web applications efficiently and securely is crucial for maintaining performance and scalability. Using uWSGI with Nginx is a popular method for serving Python applications, providing robust handling of client requests and serving content quickly. This guide details how to deploy a Python application using uWSGI and Nginx on a Server Stadium dedicated server or VM.


  • A Server Stadium VM or dedicated server running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS or 22.04 LTS. If you do not have one, sign up here.
  • Administrative or sudo privileges on your server.
  • A Python application ready to be deployed.

Step 1: Install Python, Nginx, and uWSGI

  1. Update Your Server’s Package Index
    Start by updating your server’s packages:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade

  2. Install Python
    Install Python and pip:

    sudo apt install python3 python3-pip

  3. Install Nginx
    Install Nginx using apt:

    sudo apt install nginx

  4. Install uWSGI
    Install uWSGI globally using pip:

    sudo pip3 install uwsgi

Step 2: Configure uWSGI

  1. Create uWSGI Configuration File
    Set up a configuration file for your application in /etc/uwsgi/sites:

    module = wsgi:app
    master = true
    processes = 5
    socket = myapp.sock
    chmod-socket = 660
    vacuum = true
    die-on-term = true

  2. Create a Systemd Unit File for uWSGI
    Create a service file to manage uWSGI:

    Description=uWSGI Emperor service

    ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/uwsgi –emperor /etc/uwsgi/sites


Step 3: Configure Nginx

  1. Create an Nginx Server Block
    Configure Nginx to forward requests to uWSGI:

    server {
    listen 80;

    location / {
    include uwsgi_params;
    uwsgi_pass unix:/path/to/your/myapp.sock;

  2. Enable the Nginx Configuration
    Enable the site and restart Nginx:

    sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/myapp /etc/nginx/sites-enabled
    sudo nginx -t
    sudo systemctl restart nginx

Step 4: Deploy Your Application

  1. Start uWSGI Service
    Enable and start the uWSGI service:

    sudo systemctl start uwsgi
    sudo systemctl enable uwsgi


Deploying your Python application with uWSGI and Nginx on Server Stadium provides a robust, scalable environment for web applications. This setup ensures that your application can handle a high number of requests efficiently and reliably.
