HTTPS and gunicorn

I'm working on a Python ssl client/server apps on Flask. I've tested them by starting gunicorn as follows:

gunicorn --bind :8080 --keyfile server.key --certfile server.crt --ca-certs app:app

And I'm able to receive data no problem. Now I want to add a supervisord script file to auto reload gunicorn if it crashes etc..

command=/home/user/FirstApp/venv/bin/gunicorn --workers=3 --keyfile certs/server.key --certfile certs/server.crt wsgi:app

Then reload/run supervisor and it shows that is running but when I try to connect just like I did before adding the supervisor I get a connection refuse error:

curl --insecure https://serverip:8080/test


curl: (7) Failed to connect to serverip port 8080: Connection refused

I don't understand why this is happening. It works perfectly fine when I'm not running the supervisord script? ….

The only thing I can think of is that supervisord has port 8080 open exclusively. This is easy to verify with any of these:

sudo lsof -i
sudo netstat -lptu
sudo netstat -tulpn

You may not have lsof installed on your system but you will definitely have netstat.
