Description of issue

  • What are the expected results?
    lsof -i:4000 return something, and works.
  • What OS, Erlang/Elixir versions are you seeing this issue on?
    Ubuntu16.03, Erlang: OTP19, Elixir: 1.6.3
  • If possible, also provide your rel/config.exs, as it is often
    my first troubleshooting question, and you’ll save us both time :slight_smile:
# Import all plugins from `rel/plugins`
# They can then be used by adding `plugin MyPlugin` to
# either an environment, or release definition, where
# `MyPlugin` is the name of the plugin module.

# For a full list of config options for both releases

Do you have

config :my_app, MyAppWeb.Endpoint,
  server: true

In your endpoint config?

There are steps you probably missed, as mentioned in the issue you linked.


Thanks! it works.
