Python Question

Celery use wrong broker

I have setup from the the docs file:

from __future__ import absolute_import

import os

from celery import Celery

from django.conf import settings

# set the default Django settings module for the 'celery' program.
os.environ.setdefault('DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE', 'cars.settings')

app = Celery('cars')

# Using a string here means the worker will not have to
# pickle the object when using Windows.
app.autodiscover_tasks(lambda: settings.INSTALLED_APPS)

supervisord config

command = /opt/webapps/bbay/env/bin/celery worker -A cars.celery:app ; Command to start app
directory = /opt/webapps/bbay/
user = bbay ; User to run as
numprocs = 1
stdout_logfile = /opt/webapps/bbay/logs/celery.log ; Where to write log messages
redirect_stderr = true ; Save stderr in the same log
autostart = true
autorestart = true
startsecs = 10

django settings :

BROKER_URL = 'redis://localhost:6379/0'

when i start worker all seems fine and correct broker url used:

(env)bbay@djproj:/opt/webapps/bbay$ celery -A cars.celery:app beat
celery beat v3.1.17 (Cipater) is starting.
__ - ... __ - _
Configuration ->
. broker -> redis://localhost:6379/0
. loader ->
. scheduler -> celery.beat.PersistentScheduler
. db -> celerybeat-schedule
. logfile -> [stderr]@%INFO
. maxinterval -> now (0s)

Here is my task:

def send_mail_task(template, context, send_to):

Here is how i use it:

send_mail_task.delay('email/confirmation_message.html', context, [, ])

But when the task called it tried to connect to default broker ( host

'' ). Here is stacktrace:

File "amqp/", line 299, in create_transport
return TCPTransport(host, connect_timeout)
File "amqp/", line 95, in __init__
raise socket.error(last_err)

So what is wrong and how to make celery connect to the specified broker and where in celery docs is it?


The problem was that i missed celery in should contain following ( from the docs ):

from __future__ import absolute_import

# This will make sure the app is always imported when
# Django starts so that shared_task will use this app.
from .celery import app as celery_app
