Reading Time: < 1 minute

Which version of Drupal are you running? Good news! There are several different methods to determine which version of Drupal you are running.

Are you a Drupal admin? Can you login? If so, you’re in luck! Finding your Drupal version is as easy as navigating a simple menu system…

For Drupal 6.0 or later…

Manage -> Reports -> Status report

For Drupal 5.x and earlier…

Administer -> Logs -> Status report

There are several files you can check for the Drupal version. They include…

  • Version 4.7.x, 5.x, 6.x: modules/system/system.module
  • Version 7.x: includes/bootstrap.inc
  • Version: 8.x: core/lib/Drupal.php

In each file, you’re looking for a variable named ‘VERSION‘. Your result should look something like:

const VERSION = '8.6.2';

In the above case, the Drupal version is 8.6.2. Easy!
