Thanks for the great software, I got my servers running in no time and sorry if this is answered elsewhere; how do I get my last deployed and running app to start after the server is rebooted to start automatically, say after a kernel upgrade?

To automatically start your erlang / elixir application after a reboot you would need to create a linux init script which calls /<path-to-your-release>/$APP/bin/$APP start. The contents of the init script depends on the linix distribution you are using and edeliver does not provide any.

To start your application after a reboot on the deploy hosts manually, you can use the following edeliver command:

mix edeliver start [staging|production] 

If you have several deploy hosts and only one is restarted, you can use the --host=[u@]<> option to start only that single one. On the other hand, executing the start command also on running nodes has no negative effects to them, they won't be restarted in that case.
