Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Moodle version.
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.
Your exact Moodle version may be obtained by viewing the file moodle/version.php in a text editor. Here is a typical version.php:
<?php // MOODLE VERSION INFORMATION // 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.
IF you have system administrator level of account, you can also use the Site administration block => Server => Environment and it will show ou which Moodle 2.x code base you are using.
