Deployment Guide for Phoenix with Mix Releases

Hi everyone,

I’m the founder of Render and we just released a guide to deploying Phoenix apps with Mix releases.

Most of it is generalized and not specific to Render, so it should help anyone who’s looking to deploy Phoenix use the new releases feature in 1.9.

We’d love feedback on how to improve it.


Hi @anuragg,

That’s a great initiative. I would like to mention one thing in that article is missing. Installing Version Specific Phoenix if needed.

mix archive.install hex phx_new always goes for the latest, but for backward compatibility please add the version as optional

mix archive.install hex phx_new 1.4.9

That would make the article even more generalized! Appreciate the effort in spreading the thoughts.
