I’m building an app using Elixir and one of the things I want to do is keep the versions of tools the same between my development environment and the Digital Ocean server. But, I’m having a hard time understanding why the DO server is running Elixir 1.13.4.
My server is the latest LTS:
Welcome to Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.15.0-47-generic x86_64)
The Elixir Version is shown as 1.13.4:
$ elixir --version Erlang/OTP 25 [erts-13.0.4] [source] [64-bit] [smp:1:1] [ds:1:1:10] [async-threads:1] [jit:ns] Elixir 1.13.4 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 25)
But, my development laptop shows elixir version 1.12.2:
$ elixir --version Erlang/OTP 24 [erts-12.2.1] [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [ds:4:4:10] [async-threads:1] [jit] Elixir 1.12.2 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 24)
The “correct” version should be 1.12.2 according to the official Ubuntu site:
Any idea how to resolve this? I’d like to use 1.12.2 as 1.13.4 seems to still be a bit bleeding edge but just understanding it would help.
