How to check Magento version

As a server administrator, we may need to find the version of the application running under the sites. Sometimes we need our search criteria limited to some specific version to find the exact fix. So it is very important to find the version of the application running.  Today I am discussing the ways to check Magento version.

Magento is an open-source e-Commerce platform in PHP.  You can download the latest magento version of Magento version from the following link. You will get the latest available version from this link.

  1. You can simply load the following link in the browser to get the version of the Magento installation. This will work until it is purposefully blocked by the administrator.
  2. https://yourdomainname.com/magento_version/
    Sample output
    Magento/2.2 (Community)
  3. Another option is login into the Magento admin backend. You can see the running version at the bottom right corner of the page. 
  4. You can check the version using command line too. 
  5. Go to your Magento root directory and run the following command

    php bin/magento --version
    Sample output. 
    Magento CLI version 2.2.5
