If you need the exact version number of your Joomla! installation, you can use one of the variants described in this article.
Hint: The method listed as variant 1 is the simplest, since you only need any browser and your Joomla! password. Variants 2 and 3 can also be used if your Joomla! website cannot be accessed at the moment (for example if it is not assigned a domain).
Variant 2: Read version.php
Connect to your web space and navigate to the folder of your website.
You find the version number when you open the file version.php in a text editor and search for the term $RELEASE.
The file version.php is located in one of the listed folders
- Joomla! 1.0.x - ./includes/version.php
- Joomla! 1.5.x - ./libraries/joomla/version.php
- Joomla! 2.5.x & 3.x - ./libraries/cms/version/version.php
