Why won't my application run with uWSGI?

I am trying to create my first Dash app and using this tutorial from DigitalOcean for a walkthrough on how to setup uWSGI and Nginx which has resulted in the following code:

from dash import Dash, html, dcc
import plotly.express as px
import pandas as pd

app = Dash()
server = app.server

df = pd.DataFrame({
    "Fruit": ["Apples", "Oranges", "Bananas", "Apples", "Oranges", "Bananas"],
    "Amount": [4, 1, 2, 2, 4, 5],
    "City": ["SF", "SF", "SF", "Montreal", "Montreal", "Montreal"]

fig = px.bar(df, x="Fruit", y="Amount", color="City", barmode="group")

app.layout = html.Div(children=[
    html.H1(children='Hello Dash'),

        Dash: A web application framework for your data.


if __name__ == '__main__':


from app import app as application

if __name__ == '__main__':

And I am running the application from within the src folder with the following terminal command:

uwsgi --socket --protocol=http -w wsgi:app

Which results in the following output:

*** Starting uWSGI 2.0.20 (64bit) on [Sun Aug 28 18:13:05 2022] *** compiled with version: 8.5.0 20210514 (Red Hat 8.5.0-10) on 28 August 2022 21:47:33 os: Linux-4.18.0-372.19.1.el8_6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 2 16:19:42 UTC 2022 nodename: localhost.localdomain machine: x86_64 clock source: unix detected number of CPU cores: 8 current working directory: /home/user/Documents/macro-dashboard/src detected binary path: /usr/libexec/platform-python3.6 !!! no internal routing support, rebuild with pcre support !!! *** WARNING: you are running uWSGI without its master process manager *** your processes number limit is 61480 your memory page size is 4096 bytes detected max file descriptor number: 262144 lock engine: pthread robust mutexes thunder lock: disabled (you can enable it with --thunder-lock) uwsgi socket 0 bound to TCP address fd 5 Python version: 3.6.8 (default, Apr 12 2022, 06:55:39) [GCC 8.5.0 20210514 (Red Hat 8.5.0-10)] — Python VM already initialized — *** Python threads support is disabled.

When I visit the url ( in my local browser, I see the following output within terminal.

I read through this thread and made the changes seen above. However, I am still seeing my error. What steps am I completing incorrectly that is showing the error? I Keep adjusting my application setup to try and have it identify the application but have been unsuccessful.

If there is anything I can add regarding additional details, please let me know. Thank you all for your time - I truly appreciate it.

try changing the wsgi.py

from app import app

application = app.server

and then try

uwsgi --socket --protocol=http -w wsgi:application
