There are several ways you can check the version of Drupal that is installed on your site:

  1. Check the core version number in the composer.json file:Navigate to the root directory of your Drupal installation.Open the composer.json file.Look for the "version" field. The value of this field indicates the version of Drupal that is installed on your site.
  2. Check the CHANGELOG.txt file:Navigate to the root directory of your Drupal installation.Open the CHANGELOG.txt file.Look for the line that begins with Drupal . The version number following this line indicates the version of Drupal that is installed on your site.
  3. Check the system table in the database:Access your Drupal database using a database management tool such as PHPMyAdmin.Look for the system table.Find the schema_version field in the system table. The value of this field indicates the version of Drupal that is installed on your site.
  4. Check the admin/reports/status page:Log in to your Drupal site as an administrator.Go to the admin/reports/status page.Look for the Drupal version field in the System section of the page. The value of this field indicates the version of Drupal that is installed on your site.

To check the Drupal version, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Drupal admin panel using your administrator username and password.
  2. Once logged in, navigate to the "Reports" menu at the top of the page.
  3. From the dropdown menu, click on "Status report."
  4. On the Status report page, you will find detailed information about your Drupal installation, including the version number.
  5. Look for the "Drupal version" field, which will display the specific Drupal version number on your website.


Alternatively, if you have direct access to the server files, you can check the Drupal version by following these steps:

  1. Connect to your website server via FTP or SSH.
  2. Browse to the root directory of your Drupal installation.
  3. Look for a file called "CHANGELOG.txt" within the root directory.
  4. Open the "CHANGELOG.txt" file and scroll down to the beginning.
  5. The first entry in the changelog file will display the Drupal version that you are currently using.


These methods will help you determine the version of the Drupal CMS installed on your website.
