How to resolve 504 Gateway Time-out Error

How to resolve 504 Gateway Time-out Error
December 10, 2020 12:29PM
I'm running a Django web application upon Gunicorn and Nginx, on a Ubuntu 16 server. The application times-out even for a slighter load and goes to 504 Gateway Timeout page. I've made several changes to my nginx.conf file, by increasing the proxy timeout duration and I've tried I've increasing the gunicorn timeout duration and keep alive duration. Nothing seems to be working to resolve this issue. Also, the webserver doesn't even recover from the timeout, and I've restart the service to run the application again. This issue has been going since long, and I've been looking everywhere to resolve this, which sort of become a big headache for me. Request all to please help me resolve this.
