[Fixed]-Not finding static files django 1.9 gunicorn


Third party app

All You need is dj-static package.

pip install dj-static

Configure your static assets in settings.py:

STATIC_ROOT = 'staticfiles'
STATIC_URL = '/static/'

Then, update your wsgi.py file to use dj-static:

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
from dj_static import Cling

application = Cling(get_wsgi_application())

Pure Django

Add to Your urls.py

from django.contrib.staticfiles.urls import staticfiles_urlpatterns


urlpatterns += staticfiles_urlpatterns()


you can server the static file from nginx server. In the server setting.

server {
   listen 80;
   server_name test.com;
   location / {
       proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
       proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
       proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
       proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
       proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Ssl on;
       proxy_redirect off; 
   location /static/ {
       autoindex on;
       alias /home/ec2-user/app/static/;
