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

If you can log in to Drupal with an administrator account…

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

If you have access to the files in the main Drupal directory…

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!
