Moodle version with (build number) and copyright

The version of Moodle which your site is using can be found if you login as an administrator and go to Settings > Site administration > Notifications.

For a list of all past Moodle versions, see dev:Releases.

Version.php file

Your exact Moodle version may be obtained by viewing the file moodle/version.php in a text editor. Here is a typical version.php:



// This file defines the current version of the core Moodle code being used.
// This is compared against the values stored in the database to determine
// whether upgrades should be performed (see lib/db/*.php)

    $version = 2007101580.00; // YYYYMMDD      = date of the 1.9 branch (don't change)
                              //         X     = release number 1.9.[0,1,2,3,4,5...]
                              //          Y.YY = micro-increments between releases

    $release = '1.9.8+ (Build: 20100512)';     // Human-friendly version name


Note: You cannot view the contents of version.php in your browser - you must use a text editor.

Discovering Version programmatically

The above variables are copied into the $CFG global object. If you are writing custom code for Moodle you can access $CFG->version and $CFG->release.
