How to Check Which WordPress Version You are Using

You can check the version of your WordPress using a few different methods:

  1.  WordPress Dashboard

    When you login to your WordPress Administrative dashboard, you will see the WordPress version in the At a Glance admin widget.

  2.  Version.php file

    You can check the wp-includes/version.php file using cPanel File Manager or FTP and you will see the version listed under $wp_version line.

  3. WP-CLI Command Line
    You can use the WordPress command line interface (WP-CLI) from SSH, simply navigate to your WordPress installation directory and run this command

    wp core version

    This will output the current version of WordPress installed.
