how to do a graceful uwsgi reload via bash script?


You can restart uWSGI by sending the SIGHUP signal to your uWSGI process like so:

kill -HUP <process-id>

If you want to automate this in a bash script, you can have uWSGI write away it's process id by supplying the pidfile option, for example like:


Then you can reload the process by:

uwsgi --reload /tmp/


You can also start uWSGI with the touch-reload argument, which specifies a file that when touched makes uWSGI reload:


Then uWSGI will reload when you touch the file:

touch /some/file

Remember that you can only reload uWSGI when it's running with the master process mode, but that's usually the case though.
