What is the version of the installed software?

If you have SSH access, the easiest way to find the version of an application installed on your Linux server is to enter a command that consists of the application name followed by -v or –version.

For example, if you want to find out what version of Perl you’re using, you can do so using:

$ perl -v.

You can also find the version of some of your software through the Graphic User Interface of your web hosting control panel.

      Hello, Junior,
      This is the latest version supported by cPanel and the server’s operating system. As soon as the setup allows for the implementation of a newer version, we’ll update it.
